Scottish Perinatal Network (SPN) Newsletter – Issue 27 – January 2023

Posted by Anne-Sophie Hoffmoen - 27/01/2023


We are pleased to share with you the latest issue of the Scottish Perinatal Network Newsletter, issue 27 covering January 2023.

Hopefully by now everyone has stopped accidentally writing ‘2022’ or ‘22 on documents and have made the full cognitive leap and settled nice into the 2023 moniker, hehe. We are going full steam ahead here at SPN as we go boldly into the last quarter of our reporting year. We are reflecting on what lies ahead and what we can and need to achieve in the next few months, but also on our ambitions for the 2023/24 financial year. For now please enjoy a summary of our work so far.
