Independent review of maternity services at
Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust

Dr Michelle Parr

I began my medical training at St Catherine’s College, Cambridge, completing my BA in Clinical Psychology prior to moving to Addenbrooke’s Hospital where I qualified as a doctor in 1994. I then soon developed an interest in Paediatrics moving out of East Anglia to Leeds and becoming increasingly involved in Neonatology. I undertook a Masters in Child Health at the University of Leeds being involved in research in gut immune function in the preterm infant. I completed my Higher Specialist Training in Neonatology with a short period back in Cambridge at the Rosie Maternity Hospital before taking up a consultant post in the North West. My first consultant post was at South Manchester University Hospital, I practiced there for 3 years before moving to my current position as a Neonatal Consultant at St Mary’s Hospital. St Mary’s Hospital is a very busy tertiary NICU offering regional and supraregional specialist services therefore combined with my post at South Manchester I have a perspective of the challenges of delivering high quality clinical care at the tertiary and local level. I have an interest in education, lecturing for both Manchester University and Salford University with particular interest in diversification of the NICU workforce. I also have an active role in governance and clinical effectiveness within our unit and the wider Neonatal Network, previously as the Lead for Governance and subsequently Lead for Mortality. I am passionate about patient safety and quality of care for all.
