Working as a Local Maternity System (LMS)

The purpose of the Local Maternity System (LMS) is to bring together Commissioners, Providers and Service Users to develop and implement a locally owned plan. The LMS is overseen by a Board that includes midwives, provider staff and consultants, NHS England, CCGs, UEA and Public Health.
The local plan aims to deliver:

  • Safer care
  • Personalised care
  • Better proactive health and ill health prevention
  • Improved post-natal care and better mental health provision for new mums and mums-to-be
  • Improved staff team working and working across boundaries

 

 

Maternity Voices Partnerships (MVPs)

A Maternity Voices Partnership is an NHS working group made up of women and their families, commissioners and providers (midwives and doctors) working together to review and contribute to the development of local maternity care. MVPs were developed from Maternity Service Liaison Committees (MSLCs) following the ‘Better Births’ review. There is an MVP based around maternity services at each of the 3 acute hospitals in Norfolk and Waveney. More information about how to get involved is available from:
