Updates on what we're doing and how your feedback is making a difference
We recently took part in a great event at the James Paget, organised by Women’s Experience Midwife, Abby. The event was called Whose Shoes? This was arranged and convened by the group MatExp who have run these events throughout the country.
The aim of the event was to bring together parents, grandparents, midwives, nurses, doctors, community groups to talk about improving care and what can be done to make the maternity experience better. This was done via the medium of a fun board game (non-competitive obviously!) which allowed all participants to have an equal say and contribute their views.
At the end of the event, all the feedback was shared on an amazing piece of artwork and all participants were asked to create a pledge saying what they would do to help improve maternity services.
At Birth Voices East we have pledged to use your feedback to help continue to improve facilities available to mums on ward 11, working with other attendees of Whose Shoes? to achieve this. Watch this space for how you can help us achieve this soon!
We always love to get your feedback and hear your views.
If you’d like to attend a feedback meeting, our next one will be held at 9:45 – 11:15 am on Wednesday 6 March at Kirkley Children’s Centre.
We look forward to seeing some of you there, but if you can’t attend and want to give feedback then this can be done via our Facebook page or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
