Maternity Service Developments
Leeds Maternity Strategy
The Maternity Strategy for Leeds sets out our nine priorities for what we need to do over the next five years (2015 - 2020), to provide safe, high quality maternity care, which meets the needs of all families in the city. It brings together the commitment of all partners to develop maternity care to support the city’s ‘Best Start Plan’, which sets out how services in Leeds can support children and parents from conception. We will ensure that services do what we know works to give women the safest pregnancy and best birth experience that they can have. Read more HERE #LeedsMatStrat

Local Maternity Systems
In support of NHS England’s National Maternity Review, the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Local Maternity System has been formed. The West Yorkshire and Harrogate Board’s vision for maternity services is to improve safety for mum and baby, for services to be tailored for individual people, to improve choice and for care to be family friendly. We believe every woman and her partner should have information to help them to make decisions about care, and every woman and baby should be able to receive support that is focused on their needs and circumstances.
