Following the event a light buffet lunch will be provided, offering further opportunity for discussion, questions and networking.  Please let us know of any particular dietary requirements.

Limited capacity & fair representation
Please note there is limited capacity at the event. Ideally,  we would like a cross section of people from across the county who are or have recently accessed the services,  professionals currently working in or with maternity services, and stakeholders involved in the decision making process.  Final allocation of attendance will be based on the above criteria to ensure the stakeholder briefing has a fair representation of people across the four categories from across the county.

On behalf of the NHS Shropshire Clinical Commissioning Group and NHS Telford & Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group, we hope you can make this date, for what promises to be an important session in moving forward the Midwife Led Unit Review to public consultation.
