Have Your Say

Northamptonshire Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP) is a working group made up of mums and families.  The MVP is supported by the NHS Northamptonshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and maternity services from our hospital trusts.  The MVP is an independent forum which has been set up to listen to and speak for service users who have accessed local maternity services. 

Each CCG has a dedicated MVP forum. Our local forum is called “Northamptonshire Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP).” The forum was officially launched in August 2018 with the appointment of the Chair and Vice Chair. This really important group supports maternity clinicians by giving feedback, sharing ideas and suggesting solutions to improve our maternity services.

A great example of their support is this website. When the Local Maternity and Neonatal Systems project team started designing the website, MVP members were asked to suggest names for the website; tell us what contents they felt pregnant woman and mums should see and they gave us examples of key search criterias they used when looking for pregnancy/maternity related information.
