Two Bradford midwives are in the running for a national nursing award.
Caroline Booth and Tina Mori have been shortlisted for the emergency and critical care prize at the Nursing Times Awards 2012 for training women how to cope with child birth emergencies at home.
The duo, who are based at the Bradford Royal Infirmary, started the course to try and improve their colleagues skills when dealing with these emergencies.
Midwives, maternity support workers, paramedics and ambulance crews all take part in the simulated learning scenario courses which are led by Caroline and Tina.

Being shortlisted for this national award is fantastic recognition for everyone who has been involved in the management of the out-of-hospital childbirth emergencies training since it began in November 2007. Tina and I have had extremely positive feedback from all the health care professionals involved and our own hospital staff have remarked that the training has increased their confidence in dealing with our colleagues, such as paramedics and ambulance staff, during these emergency situations.
The emergency and critical care award will go to the team who have best demonstrated significant improvement in the quality of patient care in emergency or critical care settings at an awards ceremony which will be held at the Hilton Hotel, Park Lane, London, on Wednesday, October 31.
