Appendix F: Sub-Group Remits And Membership

Sub-Group: Evidence and Data

Remit:

The group will consider the evidence base pertinent to the quality of maternity services and neonatal services in Scotland, based on available evidence and data, and other sources of evidence such as outputs from NHS Board staff events and service user focus groups. Evidence may also include available data on internationally comparable maternity and neonatal services.

The group will also provide recommendations on the points below to inform the models of care and workforce Sub-Groups to improve quality, safety and choice in maternity and neonatal services.

1. Complement and inform the models of care work by examining evidence and data on models of care and relevant aspects of workforce, including evidence about delivery of services across a diverse range of geographical and social circumstances.

2. Consider evidence and data about effectiveness, safety, equity and cost in the organisation and delivery of person-centred maternity and neonatal services.

3. Examine evidence and data in relation to short and longer-term clinical and psycho-social outcomes for women and children, where appropriate; sustainable service development; and user experiences.

4. Examine evidence and data with an emphasis on inequalities in the organisation and delivery of maternity and neonatal care and the needs of families and babies.

Maternity and Neonatal Review

Sub-Group: Workforce

Remit:

The group will consider the current key workforce challenges and, based on the output from the other working groups, will determine the workforce requirement for a safe and sustainable service across NHSScotland.

This will include consideration of:

  • Workforce statistics and demographic profile
  • Roles of maternity and neonatal professionals and variation across Scotland
  • Skills/training/education
  • Working in remote and rural locations

The group will also consider professional culture in terms of workplace communications and compassionate engagement with service users.

The group will provide recommendations to ensure we have a modern, flexible and efficient workforce that can deliver safe, effective and high quality maternity and neonatal services, that puts mothers, babies and families at the centre of care.
