BSOTS - Birmingham Symptom-specific Obstetric Triage System

We have developed, evaluated and implemented a maternity triage system called Birmingham Symptom specific Obstetric Triage System (BSOTS), which is used in 16 maternity units with another 20 trained and in the process of implementation. More widespread implementation is currently being supported by the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) and we are streamlining all aspects of the project. We are also planning an exploration of the implementation in units to explore what the components of successful and unsuccessful implementation are using an implementation framework. In response to COVID-19 we have moved the maternity units training online as several units wanted to implement BSOTS to improve safety in their triage departments.
