As part of the local maternity system, the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is consulting the general public on their proposal to transform maternity services across Bath and North East Somerset (BaNES), Swindon and Wiltshire. Their proposal has been developed by all the NHS organisations that plan and buy health services as well as those that provide or manage maternity services across BaNES, Swindon and Wiltshire. Over last 18 months, these organisations have worked with more than 2000 women and families, staff, and partner organisations to look at ways they can improve the services they provide to mothers and families across the region. They want to provide:-
More equal access to the different birthing options available to women
Improved personalised care so they listen to and understand what women want
Continuity of care to improve the relationship between mother, family and midwife
Improved community support to provide targeted care close to home
Integrated and seamless care regardless of where and how women choose to give birth.
period runs from 12 November 2018 until 24 February 2019.

They also want to use these sessions to consider the information and support parents/carers might need to support their children plan for adulthood and prepare for this transition.
