4.5 Reviewing services

The Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP) will have a systematic approach to reviewing information about the service in order to identify what is going well and where there may be opportunities for improvement. The MVP will receive relevant data about the service which is likely to include:

  • Maternity dashboard
  • Care Quality Commission findings
  • Clinical audit reports from provider trusts
  • Themes of complaints
  • Feedback gathered by the MVP, maternity providers, Healthwatch or any other local group.
  • 15 Steps for Maternity reports (see section 3.13)

By reviewing a range of data sources, MVP members can together identify potential areas for improvement. These can be prioritised as topics for future MVP meetings and can inform the ongoing development of the MVP’s work programme.
