GTT Service Provision

Up to Antenatal Corticosteroids to Reduce Neonatal Morbidity (RCOG Green-top 7) - Sonia Clark

We are struggling with our numbers needing GTTs in pregnancy, does anyone have any bright ideas on innovative ways to provide for this?

We currently do 40-45 GTTs per week, but frequently needing more.

We do this within the ANC as our Assessment ward is already busy.

Staffing currently won't allow, but I think we either need another GTT list running simultaneously or we need primary care to help us to provide these.

Does anyone have their GTTs done in primary care?

Maybe we could offer fasting/HbA1c postnatally instead of GTT postnatally?

Many thanks!

Booking GTTs is a problem for all. Post natal test we generally do a fasting only with selective women having a full GTT, this proves to be much more manageable.

In my Trust probably easier to manage the A/N GTT as there are 3 midwife led units as well as main Hospital so they do their ladies' tests.

HI

 

we currently do 40-50 per week also.

 

Our HCAs run the clinic monday to friday 9am start and do all the GTTs.

 

I then follow them up the next working day. No Midwives are involved in the GTT process directly
