We recently went to an exciting event in Manchester – the NHS EXPO. Our Lucy Potter, Chair of the Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP) went along to present with her colleagues and alongside Karen Poole and Annemarie Henshaw, on ‘How to succeed at system level planning’.
Lucy (on the left in the photo) was, as always, representing the voices of those people who access the Local Maternity System (LMS) in West Yorkshire and Harrogate. It was a chance to make clear how important the MVP is as a way of hearing from those who access maternity services in our area and how it helps improve maternity care for all. Lucy showed how the 7 MVPs have helped families not only have an input, but their experiences have helped shape the services and maternity experiences of women and other families in the region. Fantastic work Lucy!
