Your MVP Needs You! - Join Us Today!
By coming to a meeting you can also find out more about the role of our service user reps:
Experts by experience are people who have lived experiences of a particular symptom of pregnancy or birth, or aspect of care, this could be due the care received or the care they needed (and did or did not receive). We are always pleased to hear from anyone who has an experience they are willing to share and could use to influence positive changes.
Service user representatives (reps) share the views of people who have given us feedback and represent people using maternity services in meetings making sure everyone’s voices are heard, even if that voice is a whisper…
Our service user reps also gather feedback from people on the wards and in the community, by visiting independent groups, attending community events and visiting groups at our children’s centres. This feedback is anonymous and by regularly listening to new parents we get a clear picture of what it’s like to have a baby now.
If you want more information about the support and training we can offer to our service user reps please email your MVP.
Have your say right here, right now!
We want to hear about your maternity care so please share your experiences using our surveys:
You can share your feedback at any time in your maternity journey and we welcome comments from dads, partners and significant others too.
The survey above is designed to understand how well you were involved in the decision about where you had your baby to support future improvement.
Your feedback and time is valued and appreciated and all responses will be kept completely anonymous.
Thank you in advance for your responses.
Our Maternity & Neonatal Vision
The Local Maternity System was asked "To co-design and implement a vision for local maternity and neonatal services with local women through Maternity Voices Partnerships" as an action from the maternity services report published in 2020 (the interim Ockenden report).
To inspire the vision the Maternity Voices group asked neonatal and maternity staff, parents-to-be and new parents to share the three words that describe your ideal maternity and neonatal care.
This co-designed vision statement will be shared across the LMS. It will be dynamic, reviewed and developed over time, to ensure implementation is useful and of benefit to both people providing and receiving maternity and neonatal care.
