Roobin Jokhi has been a Consultant in Obstetrics at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust since 2010. He is an Obstetrician, and Fetal and Maternal Medicine specialist caring for a wide range of women with high risk medical and pregnancy related complications. He has a first-class honours degree from the University of Sheffield in Reproductive Biology and has an MD in the prediction and investigation of preterm birth.
He was the lead reviewer in Sheffield for the Each Baby Counts (EBC) initiative run by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) until the project was closed. Each Baby Counts was the RCOG’s national quality improvement programme to reduce the number of babies who die or are left severely disabled as a result of incidents occurring during term labour.
He has been the Lead for Maternity Governance at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust since December 2021 and is heavily involved in all aspects of risk and governance including reviewing cases for the Perinatal Mortality Review Tool (PMRT) within the department and investigating term admissions to the Special Care Unit via the ATAIN programme.
Roobin is heavily involved in the governance and clinical risk structure ensuring all serious incidents are investigated and analysed. The findings of these incidents would then be fed back to parents with honesty and full disclosure, and any learning from incidents shared to minimise the chances of further recurrences in the future.
Special areas of interest include:
Obstetrics. Labour and delivery.
High risk pregnancy. Maternal and Fetal medicine.
