We developed our Working Together Groups around sustaining maternity services after our Healthcare For The Future public consultation.

The group is made up of NHS staff and leaders, community leaders, interested people and representatives from the third sector. It is chaired by the Ven Richard Pratt, the Archdeacon of West Cumberland.

The steering group meets regularly to monitor progress and ensure the work developing through co-production is valued by the NHS.

This paper was taken to our System Leadership Board (SLB) on 10 January 2019

It is an update on progress in co-production.

  1. The collaborative development of the coproduction toolkit
  2. A paper from the West Cumbrian Voices For Healthcare challenging progress and suggesting improvements.

The paper was presented to the SLB which reaffirmed its commitment to co-production, learning and improving as we go. The considered input from the Voices group was noted and the time and effort to provide constructive feedback was praised.


The following link is a presentation given by those involved in co-production to the clinical experts reviewing progress on the long term sustainability of maternity.
