About Pregnancy and newborn Services Network (PSN)
The Pregnancy and Newborn Services Network (PSN) aims to improve the quality and safety of maternal and neonatal care in NSW, through collaboration and continuation of care with service providers, especially to those women and their families at high risk of an adverse outcome due to prematurity and other contributing medical conditions.
PSN was formed in 1991 in response to a number of state-wide reviews of maternity and perinatal services. It forms part of the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network.
PSN brings together clinicians in perinatal medicine to discuss issues of common interest, devise appropriate solutions and advise on policies and resources.
The role of PSN is as a forum for discussion; coordination of the network and monitoring the delivery of statewide perinatal services; the development and implementation of clinical policies and practice guidelines through the Ministry of Health; and operating the Neonatal Intensive Care Units’ data collection.
