Working with you to Transform Acute Maternity Services

8th December 2022

Northern HSCT are consulting on why they believe they need to make some changes to improve the maternity service they provide for women and their families.  They want everyone across the Northern Trust area to benefit from safe, effective and high quality acute maternity services.   They must carefully plan how to meet that growing need and ensure they make best use of their resources to provide excellent care.

The consultation document can be found on the Trust’s website at http://www.northerntrust.hscni.net.   Alternatively, if you would like to receive a copy of the consultation document please contact the Trust’s Equality Unit on equality.unit@northerntrust.hscni.net or telephone 028 2766 1377.

In keeping with the commitments in our Equality Scheme NHSCT have carried out an Equality Impact Assessment of this proposal.  They have also carried out a Rural Needs Impact Assessment.  A copy of the Equality Impact Assessment and Rural Needs Impact Assessment can also be found on the Trust’s website.

The Trust welcomes your views on this proposal.  A consultation Proforma is available on the website for you to complete, however, they welcome your comments in any format.  NHSCT are consulting for 14 weeks beginning 25 November 2022.  Comments should be returned to the Equality Unit by 3 March 2023.
