Gloucestershire Maternity Voices Partnership is made up of volunteers who represent the voice of women and families from all communities and cultures to inform improvements in local maternity care.

Our members are made up of:

  • Local people who have recently had a baby or are currently expecting a baby
  • Healthcare professionals, including midwives, health visitors, obstetricians and neonatal staff who work at our maternity units in Gloucestershire and provide care in the community.
  • Representatives from Public Health and NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)
  • Representatives from voluntary groups who support pregnant women and new parents

The Partnership is an independent organisation, although we work closely with health professionals from across the Local Maternity System, including the NHS Trusts, GPs  and local voluntary groups.

We sit on the Local Maternity System Board, in order to help shape services around the needs of women and partners in our community.

We are funded by NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group, which enables us to have access to resources to help us reach more mums and have a positive impact on local maternity services.
