Maternity, Children and Young People

The Wessex Maternity Children and Young People (MCYP) Clinical Network (CN) works with local organisations such as, commissioners, providers and Directors of Children’s Services to understand the current systems and opportunities for pathway, service and system transformation. Our focus is transformational change across pathways to improve the experience and outcomes for women and families, babies, children and young people. Our main area of work is supporting service delivery across Wessex in line with the identified deliverables outlined in the Five Year Forward View, with a particular current focus on delivery of Better Births and the national Maternity Transformation Programme, Perinatal Mental Health and Children and Young People Mental Health. We also aim to highlight health inequalities across Wessex through the analysis of local, regional and national data and support CCG’s and Public Health in reducing them.

Our Main Workstreams

  • Delivery of the Better Births recommendations through the National Maternity Transformation Programme
