On Wednesday 24th October 2018, Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Groups held a Midwife Led Unit Stakeholder Briefing at The Trinity Centre, Meole Brace, Shrewsbury and presented the progress on the Midwife Led Unit Review. The event was attended by a cross section of people from across the county, all of who had recently accessed or who are passionate about the service.
Meredith Vivian from the Shropshire Patient Group welcomed everyone to the event, and led us through the packed agenda. The room was spilt into smaller groups to enable good discussion to take place.
The feedback from the event was highly valuable, raising useful points that will require additional action, so that the model can be developed further to meet the needs of women and their families.
The feedback, along with ongoing engagement will continue to shape discussions and help us to clearly define options before undertaking a formal public consultation.
