The West Yorkshire & Harrogate Local Maternity System supports the seven Maternity Voices Partnership groups across our system to transform our maternity services together.
Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP) is an NHS working group - a team of women and their families, commissioners and providers (midwives and doctors) working together to review and contribute to the development of local maternity care.
National Maternity Voices provide support and advice to service user chairs of Maternity Voices Partnerships. NMV promotes awareness of good practice in setting up and developing MVPs among commissioners and provider staff of maternity services in England. This is to ensure:
- Every woman on the maternity pathway has a chance to have her voice heard about the service she is receiving through an MVP
- Every MVP is adequately resourced to engage in true co-production of maternity services
- Local MVP chairs and service user members feel networked and supported in their role
- MVPs are involved in work in their local communities and also represented at Local Maternity System (LMS) level
