Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP)

Gateway Family Services have been appointed to provide the Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP) for Birmingham and Solihull’s Local Maternity System (LMS).

Gateway will form the MVP to help to review and contribute to the development of the LMS.

Listening to the voices of patients those who run services in Birmingham and Solihull is crucial to the success of Bump, to ensure that maternity services are of a high quality for women and families in the region.

Gateway will find the right people to be part of the MVP, bringing together people with experience of maternity services in the area as well as commissioners, midwives and doctors to ensure a wide range of voices will be heard.

The MVP will meet quarterly to discuss a range of topics related to pregnancy and birth, with feedback allowing decision makers to shape the future of services in Birmingham and Solihull.

If you have recent experience of Birmingham and Solihull’s maternity services or know someone who has, and you’re interested in finding out more, please contact our MVP Co-ordinator Sharon Bartlett on
