The Maternity Choice and Personalisation Pioneers have been developed to test ways of improving choice and personalisation for women accessing maternity services. All of the Pioneers will seek to deepen as well as widen the choices available to women across clinical commissioning group (CCG) boundaries, by seeking to attract new providers of services into their areas and empowering women to take control in decisions about the care they receive, to meet their needs and preferences.
On the 20th March 2017 the Maternity Pioneer Project Manager supported by the engagement team, ran a focus group to seek views and feedback from women to develop a “tool” that will be able to help women plan their maternity care. The focus group enabled participants to share their thoughts around choice and identify the challenges in the current maternity journey.
Below is the feedback received from participants at the focus group held on 20th March 2017
