Using maternity services during COVID-19

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


At onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, all NHS maternity services had to make changes to their service delivery in order to protect service users and their babies, to protect staff providing the services and to ensure continued provision of essential care as the wider NHS coped with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The local Maternity Voices Partnerships (MVP), Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG), Local Authorities and the NHS wanted to understand the impact of the changes that were introduced in the first period of lockdown and local restrictions (March 2020-August 2020) on expectant and new parents and families and so a joint survey was developed. Local engagement was launched in order to gather the views of those using local maternity services at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust (CHFT) and Mid-Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust (MYHT). This survey went live on 30 July 2020 and was open for 4 weeks
