National Maternity Voices’ Maternity Service User Register

Last summer, we announced our involvement with the Health and Wellbeing Alliance’s Maternity Consortium.

As part of our contribution to the Consortium’s project, Engaging with diverse communities to improve access to appropriate services for those at risk of poorer maternity outcomes”, we’re pleased to share our service user register with you.

We are currently prioritizing those from ethnic minority backgrounds, and those who live/work/volunteer in postcodes that fall within the last two most deprived deciles for signup to the register.

Annual Report for April 2019 – March 2020

From our early beginning in December 2016, the National Maternity Voices (NMV) has come a very long away. And despite the challenges of this year, unforeseen at our first service user event user event earlier in March, we are thankful that we have been able to continue working towards our objectives. One of this is the completion and publication of our annual report from April 2019 to March 2020, which we are now delighted to share with you.

It has taken hours of passion, effort, heart, and mind to put together; a capture of so much co-designing and co-production.
