Maternity Transformation Programme
Better Births, the report of the national maternity review was published in February 2016 and sets out a clear vision for maternity services across England to become safer, more personalised, professional and more family friendly.
Rotherham is a partner of the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Local Maternity System (LMS) that is leading on transforming maternity services in line with better births.
Your voice in developing maternity services
Better Births makes it clear that women and their families are at the heart of the maternity transformation programme. It is a national requirement to have a Maternity Voices Partnership in each local area, so as to ensure that women and their families help shape and develop maternity services.
The Rotherham Maternity Voices Partnership is a friendly group of parent representatives and practitioners, who are working together to shape the development and direction of maternity transformation in Rotherham.
Would you like to have an active role in making a difference to your local maternity services? If yes, then please go to the following Facebook page:
Our maternity voices group has produced information and advice, working with local mums, both to choose the issues most important to them, and the way they wanted the information.
Please find below links to several pieces of work undertaken by Rotherham Maternity Voices; in conjunction with maternity services. These include information posters, surveys and notes from the last meeting. These are all being used to inform and develop services going forward.
