National Maternity Voices (NMV) are delighted to be part of the Better Births Two Years on event this Tuesday (27th March 2018) at The Midland hotel Manchester.
Come and find us at the ‘Market Place’ which is running over lunch between 13:00 and 14:15 in the Octagon lounge and Trafford suite. Look out for our pop-up banner and come and say hello if you want to find out more about how Maternity Voices Partnerships (MVPs) can and should be at the heart of Better Births!
We will also be holding a series of pop up talks during lunch in the Midland lounge. NMV committee members Cathy Brewster and Emma Crookes will be talking about what newly formed Maternity Voices Partnerships (MVPs) need to get going at 13:45-13:55 followed by Sandra Guise and Laura James discussing what established MVPs can achieve at 14:00-14:10.
The Better Births 2 years on event will also see the launch of the 15 Steps Challenge for Maternity developed by Lisa Ramsey of NMV in her role as Service User Voice Policy Manager for Maternity at NHS England. The Fifteen Steps for Maternity toolkit is designed especially for use by Maternity Voices Partnerships (MVPs). These local teams of service users, midwives, doctors and commissioners can use the toolkit to enhance collaborative working so that together improvements to maternity services can be identified and delivered.
