Overview of specific actions in msag s workplan

Overview of specific actions in MSAG’s Workplan

  • Refreshment of the framework for maternity services

  • Neonatal Services

  • Reducing inequalities in access, care and experience

  • Harnessing patient experience-to drive service improvement

  • Improving health-prioritising and identifying gaps- e.g. parenting, maternal and infant mental health

  • Caesarean section rates

  • Workforce development and planning


Why refresh the framework for maternity services

Why refresh the framework for maternity services?

  • Policy, evidence and knowledge has moved on since 2001- particularly in relation to the impact of maternal health and social circumstances on health outcomes for children

  • Original framework weak on performance measures

  • There are significant inequalities in outcomes


Maternal and infant mortality inequalities

Maternal and perinatal mortality both show a strong association with area deprivation and social class

Women from the poorest areas are twice as likely to have babies who are small for their gestational age

Babies born to women under 20 are more likely to have poorer outcomes across a range of domains, including low birth weight, higher mortality and morbidity rates

Women from asylum seeking groups and BME communities are 3 times more likely to die in childbirth (UK data- poor data collection in Scotland)

Women living in the poorest areas ( tends to include majority of teenage births) are known to access antenatal care later and engage less with maternity services

Women’s experience of maternity services care is socially patterned

CMACE recommendations

Language and communication and access to clinical care –need to be addressed to improve safety and effectiveness

Maternal and Infant mortality Inequalities


The big cultural challenge

The Big Cultural Challenge

Shift in perspectives needed?

  • Health inequalities are avoidable and can be reduced

  • NHS services do have a critical role to play in addressing health inequalities- maternity services are a critical universal NHS service to women and children


The cultural challenge

The Cultural Challenge

Shift in perspectives needed?

  • Health inequalities are a clinical issue

  • Maternity services are the only universal public service to women- 2 key roles

    • As a partner with other NHS services and other public and third sector services

    • In providing quality services that are sensitive to inequalities- using the 7c’s of clinical quality


Equity in quality

Equity in Quality

  • Caring and compassionate staff and services

  • Clear communication and explanation about conditions and treatment options

  • Effective collaboration between clinicians, patients (and others involved in providing care and supporting the patient)

  • A clean and safe care environment

  • Continuity of care and good access to care

  • Clinical excellence


System challenges

System Challenges?

  • Data collection and information

  • Planning structures and mechanisms (planning needs to extend beyond the Acute Sector world- shifting the balance of care)

  • Resources


Refreshment approach

Refreshment Approach

  • Synthesising 2001 framework/EGAMS/New policy/New evidence

  • Nothing taken out but some merging

  • Language updated- but needs more work

  • Key additions-

    • addressing inequalities in access, care and experience

    • Identifying performance measures

      Caution: work in progress-needs further

      development!


Feedback so far

Feedback so far

  • Right direction

  • Performance measures are welcome

  • Tension between choice/want v need- needs to be explicit

  • New clinical challenges need to be highlighted- maternal age, obesity, neonatal care etc


Next steps

Next Steps

  • Writing group meeting on 15th June

  • Further feedback gathered over the summer

  • Consensus day in October

  • Circulated with ministerial approval- November/December

Question

Question

  • Thinking about inequalities and the need for collaboration within the NHS-what do you think should happen to strengthen links between maternity services and children’s services such as Health Visiting, CAMHS,LAAC, Specialist Paediatrics etc –can we strengthen service planning, core workforce skills or is there something else?
