Maternity Services Conference » Health »


Capita's National
Maternity Services Conference
Improving Quality, Choice and Outcomes for All
Thursday 25th February 2010 - Central London

Aims & Objectives

This is a key time to reflect on progress in Maternity Services. To what extent did we meet the vision and commitments set out in the Operating Framework, Maternity Matters and the National Service Framework’s maternity standard by the end of 2009? What can we do to sustain and improve services in 2010 and beyond?
Capita’s National Maternity Services Conference provides the latest Government policy and examines national good practice for all Maternity Services leaders. This cross-sector forum brings together professionals from a range of services including Midwifery, Teenage Pregnancy, Mental Health, Children’s Centres, Quality, Commissioning and Public Health. It looks at strategy, planning and implementation of targeted and holistic services. Sessions explore how we can further drive up expectations and standards for women, how vulnerable groups can best be supported and health inequalities reduced.

Key issues addressed include:
Implementing holistic, wrap-around support services for mothers and families
Engaging with and providing for the most vulnerable groups
Safeguarding children and the CAF process
The Children’s Centre / Midwifery interface
Upskilling and safeguarding the workforce
Providing World Class care to all
