Shropshire maternity services review launched

A review of maternity services in Shropshire has been launched.

Telford and Wrekin and Shropshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) want to hear from parents who used the services during and after pregnancy since 1 April last year.

Families, health professionals and interest groups are also being asked for their opinions.

The review is to identify areas of the service which can be improved, the CCG said.

Bharti Patel-Smith, from the Shropshire CCG, said: "We believe we miss a lot of the positive experiences because parents are so overwhelmed by the emotion of having a new family member that they don't tell us."

A dedicated Facebook page, online survey and Twitter account have been set up and a number of public meetings are to be held throughout September.

The Shropshire CCG said about 6,300 babies have been born in the county since 1 April 2012.
