Health Sciences news roundup on Wednesday, 9th July 2014

Published: 9 July 2014

A summary of the latest news and intelligence from around the Faculty.

Watch out for a piece on our RHT Discovery Day which is due to be aired during tonight’s ITV Meridian News starting at 6pm.  The programme’s film crew attended the event last week and interviewed Jane Burridge, as well as filming many other aspects on show.


Liz Cluett has written a piece for The Conversation answering the question ‘should we be worrying about using birthing pools’ following the recent story about a baby contracting Legionnaire’s from one. The answer is no if you do not pre fill pools and keep them hot.  Liz was lead reviewer on the Cochrane review into outcomes from immersion in water during labour and birth


Finally…thank you to everyone who helped make our recent Open Days a huge success. The feedback has been incredibly positive so far, especially about the new artwork in the building.

This year two of the University’s digi champs helped create social media buzz over the two days, and the rather fabulous new takeaway FAQs swatch for perspective
