Join us and share your maternity story       Couple Midwife and Question Marks

On Friday 13th March 2020 between 10am and 12 midday we are holding an event to ask parents or anyone expecting a baby to share their experiences of maternity care and what really makes a difference. You are more than welcome to bring your partner, mum, friend or baby as we would love to hear the views of as many involved people as possible.

It will be held at Marshlands Children's Centre, Hall Road, Old Goole, DN14 5UE.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided free of charge.

'Whose shoes?' is an interactive event where health care staff listen and work with you in partnership to help improve maternity services.

Anyone can take part in shaping maternity services, however big or small the change, whether you are a patient, partner, community group or NHS staff.

To book your place please send an email with the subject header 'Whose Shoes' to HullCCG.HCVLMS@nhs.net.
