Maternity and Neonatal services change

How do you want your antenatal appointments to look like?

We at the MVP are really passionate about service users experience in maternity services. There has never been a better opportunity to find out more on your thoughts then at the maternity and neonatal consultation currently underway. The NHS and Clinical Commissioning Group are running a series of events at various community centre’s to get a better idea on what you would like to see in terms of the way antenatal appointments are shaped. Our parent rep Julia visited the very first consultation which took place at Hamara Centre on Tempest Road (11 February 2020). Despite the weather Julia noted peoples best efforts to attend. There were obstetricians, consultants and neonatologists to talk to about the changes. The important message which was coming from the professionals was the need to get as much feedback on maternity services in general as possible. The survey is designed to get an insight on what women and families need in terms of where they go for their appointments and if they’d prefer to have all maternity services under one roof or between St James’s and the LGI.

Here’s a info graphic giving a brief summary of what these changes and more would look like:
