Our National Centre for Miscarriage Research has been brought into being by Tommy’s, the UK baby charity.
Jane Brewin, CEO of Tommy’s says, “Medical science doesn’t fully understand miscarriage which is why funding and research is so critical. Through pioneering medical research, Tommy’s clinicians will save babies’ lives by turning their discoveries into screening tests and treatments and launch clinics for pregnant women who are most at risk, giving them the latest improvements in care. They’ll share their work in national clinical guidelines, preventing miscarriages and developing better care across the country.”
“Through the National Centre for Miscarriage Research we’ll raise the profile of miscarriage research, and encourage other organisations to invest and help break the silence around miscarriage. To help make it a priority for the government, the team will highlight the economic cost for the NHS. They are also growing and leading a network of specialists, and working closely with other Tommy’s centres and researchers across the UK and internationally.”
