“The Better Births’ vision is transformational. As with most things that are worth doing, this transformation will not be achieved without hard work, innovation and, in some cases, upheaval. We will need to think differently about the way we do things. Achieving the vision is as much about creating a lasting ethos of greater collaboration as it is about system design. This will require a cultural shift in many places and organisations, and also for many of us as individuals.” Sarah-Jane Marsh Chief Executive Officer of Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospital and Chair of the NHS England Maternity Transformation Programme, 2017

“Maternity and new-born services are being grouped in to Local Maternity Systems which will plan, deliver, monitor and transform maternity and new-born services in all areas. All staff involved in delivering or commissioning these services will need to understand how to work in their LMS. Midwives, obstetricians, GPs and commissioners will be impacted and involved in this national transformation of maternity services, knowing how you want to improve your local service and influence care provision of your women and families is critical. Understanding how to co-design services with women, use STPs to fund and resource changes needed in maternity services and harnessing the support of neonatal and maternity clinical networks will be covered on this day. Maternity and new born services must be safer, more efficient and built around the choice and empowerment of the women. If maternity care is your business this is a conference you should attend.” Professor Helen Young, Chief Nurse/Director of Nursing and Midwifery, Birmingham Women’s NHS Foundation Trust
