SPSP Perinatal and SPSP Paediatric programmes


Supporting improved outcomes for women, birthing people, babies, children and families in Scotland

From June 2023, SPSP Maternity and Children Quality Improvement Collaborative (MCQIC) is changing its name. The next phase of our improvement work will focus on two programmes:

SPSP Perinatal programme SPSP Paediatric programme
Working together to improve safety for women, birthing people, babies and families in Scotland Working together to improve safety for children and young people in Scotland


Our aim is to improve safety for:  

  • women  
  • birthing people  
  • babies  
  • children and young people 
  • families

Working together to improve safety 

The programmes will launch autumn 2023. A co-design process supported by expert reference groups is currently underway. We will share improvement resources with NHS boards later in the year.
