Maternity and Neonatal Engagement drop in dates

Tell us your thoughts…

Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust is planning to build two new hospitals at Leeds General Infirmary (LGI). This change provides us with an opportunity to improve the way we deliver maternity and neonatal services in Leeds. We are planning to;

·         centralise maternity and neonatal services in LGI so that all services are in
one place and we can keep families together when they need to use neonatal

·         build a brand new midwifery-led unit at LGI

·         consult on the way we provide hospital antenatal services

·         keep community antenatal services the same

Our consultation is live right now and we’re asking for parents, expectant parents, members of the public and staff to get involved and have their say, you don’t have to have used our maternity and neonatal services to have your say. You can find the survey and more information on our website here:

We’re also running a number of ‘drop-in’ sessions where people can come along to speak to healthcare professionals, including consultants and midwives. Our first session is this week and you’d be welcome to come along to find out more about the consultation and ask any questions you may have.

The drop-ins are scheduled for the following dates and locations:

I hope you can help us out by:

·         filling in the survey yourself

·         share with your staff and colleagues

·         share with any patient/staff networks you might have

·         promote on social media (you can tag us with @nhsleeds)

We have access to paper copies of the consultation document, advertising posters and postcards (the postcards are available in Tigrinian, Arabic and Romanian too). We also have an easy read version available too. All of these are available digitally on our website above and we can get printed/paper copies to you as needed, just let us know.
