The health and care partnership for Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, Together We’re Better, is holding five maternity focus groups across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent over the coming month. We want to speak to new and expectant mothers, as well as anyone planning on having a baby and those working in maternity services, to listen to their views of maternity services across the patch.
The feedback gathered at these sessions will help us to shape local maternity services for the future.
We are asking that people register for a place via this registration form: https://nhs.researchfeedback.net/s.asp?k=157562410362. Spaces are limited, so we would urge people to register sooner rather than later.
