Improving local maternity services

Across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland there is a plan in place to transform and improve maternity and neonatal services

NHS organisations and local authorities are working together to put this plan into action and we want to share our vision with the public, patients, carers and other organisations.

We have developed the plan in line with the recent national NHS guidance, “Better Births”, which has been developed so that maternity services become “safer, more personalised and more family friendly; where every woman is able to make decisions about her care; and where she and her baby can access support that is centred around their individual needs and circumstances”.

The “Better Births” guidance also wants staff to be “supported to deliver care which is woman centred, working in high performing teams, in organisations which are well led and in cultures which promote innovation, continuous learning and break down organisational and professional boundaries”.

A plan for everyone

We want to involve members of the public in helping to shape our services. This includes current parents, people who have used local maternity and neonatal services already or anyone else who is interested in sharing their views on our plans.

Across the country, different areas are creating a Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP), bringing together women who have recently given birth and their families to give feedback on their experience and help departments to improve their services. This is also a great chance to meet other new mums and help shape future maternity provision in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

You can get involved by contacting Rabina Ayaz, our CYP Maternity Services Senior officer
