Maternal and Neonatal (MatNeo) Health Safety Collaborative (PSC View)


This guide is for users of the MatNeo Portal who work in PSCs across England. To access the MatNeo Improvement portal on the PSMU website, one needs to have a unique username and password. Please contact the Patient Safety Measurement Unit (PSMU) help desk on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you need help to get setup.

For illustration purposes only, we have created a demo account that belongs to Wessex Academic Health Science Network (AHSN). You will be able to follow my journey and relate it to your region because the basics are the same. However, if you require specific guidance with your improvement plan, don’t hesitate to contact any of the NHSI improvement managers who will be happy to attend to your specific requirements.

The PSMU website is found at the following address where you will be prompted for your login details to access the matneo portal as described above. Once logged in, select Workstreams, Maternity & Neonatal and then click on MatNeo Improvement Portal



The following landing page should be displayed:-



Your name and role will be displayed at the top of the screen to confirm that you are live on the system. In the illustration above, my name is psc-test1, my role is PSC Lead, and my Responsibilities are Wessex (the name of my AHSN).

The organisations that fall under that AHSN or PSC will be listed on the landing page. If any organisation is missing, please contact the PSMU and they will update the database accordingly. The four buttons at the top of the organisations take you to the reporting screens of the database. The three buttons next to each organisation also take you to the reporting screens but filtered for each organisation.


User Management


The first button takes you to the user management page:-



 From this page you can see a list of all the users for the different organisations within that PSC, the wave number , whether that account is blocked or active, the date each account was created,  the date the user(s) last logged into the PSMU website and whether they have reset their password or not. This page helps to give an overview of whether users have been experiencing issues with their logins or not.


Improvement Plans


The improvement plans screen shows all the Improvement plans that have been logged by the organisations in your PSC.

 If you click on each improvement plan, you can see an overview of all the data that has been input into that improvement plan as shown in the snapshot below:-


To print an improvement plan, you simply click on the print button displayed on the top right hand corner of the improvement plan. If you right-click anywhere on the improvement plan, you will also be able to print the plan. We recommend that you print to pdf unless you need a paper copy.


Highlight Report



The highlight report button takes you to the page shown above which summarises the organisation names within a particular region, waves, improvement managers, the latest dates when the highlight report and/or Trust Progression Assessment Score (TPAS) was added and the value of the TPAS.

 There is a colour coding system that flags entries made outside the appropriate reporting timelines. For wave 1 trusts, this is quarterly and for wave 2 trusts it is monthly. If no data has ever been added for any of the trust, these fields will be blank; the colour coding triggers are not activated until some data has been entered. 

If you want to see a particular highlight report, navigate to the relevant organisation, click on it and a summary for that organisation only will be appear.



You will be able to view a list of all highlight reports submitted in recent months by that organisation. You can drill down into the history tab which shows you in a bit more detail the users who actually made changes and when these were made.

On the left hand side, you can see the trust progression assessment scores and on the right hand side you can see the highlight reports. You can navigate to a highlight report by clicking on the view highlight report button (magnifying glass image).  You can also click on the example button which will show an illustration of the level of detail expected of a sound highlight report each month.



Measurement Reports



The last button is the measurement reports. If you click that option you will see a summary page shown above which provides a snapshot of measures added and when they were last updated. If you select a particular trust, you will see a list of all potential measures that the trust could be adding versus the measures that they have actually added. You can expand each measure and filter to different levels.
