Maternity Services Liaison Committee: Vale of York
The Maternity Services Liaison Committee (MSLC) works in partnership with local Maternity services at York and service users to provide a forum, bringing together the providers and stakeholders involved in maternity care to advise upon local maternity services.
The aim of the MSLC is to ensure that maternity service commissioners, the Vale of York CCG and the local maternity services hear and take account of the views of women and families using the service.
If you have recently used maternity services in the last 2 years and would like to contribute or be part of this group then please contact Liz Ross, Head of Midwifery on 01904 725343 or e-mail: Elizabeth.email@example.com.
‘It’s important we hear what women want and how we can develop our service to meet local needs and work towards national recommendations from the Better Births maternity services review 2016. Local women are encouraged to assist in shaping the delivery of maternity services to meet the needs of the local users’.
