Maternity Network members include obstetricians, midwives and a wide variety of other professionals who use their expert knowledge and experience to review a wide range of services relating to maternity care provision in the North East and Cumbria.
The main discussion forum in which the Network comes together in order to discuss and set policy is the Maternity Clinical Advisory Group.
The purpose of the group is to ensure the highest possible standard of safe, effective care to women and their babies/families by reducing unnecessary variation in outcomes and quality of care across provider organisations and individual clinicians within the network.
