The National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has published new guidance for the month of September 2011. This month there is one clinical guideline that impacts upon primary care.
The Multiple pregnancy clinical guideline (QRG) offers evidence-based advice on the care of women with multiple pregnancies (twins and triplets) in the antenatal period. This guideline should be read in conjunction with the already published Antenatal care clinical guideline from March 2008.
Action: Clinicians should be aware of this guideline and ensure that women with multiple pregnancies are appropriately referred.
