Regional Perinatal Equity Network

13 July, 12-2pm
Location: Online
Organised by: South West and West of England AHSNs

Event summary

Join us for our next Regional South West & West of England Perinatal Equity Network, in response to the growing commitment in the region to work together to address inequality within maternity and neonatal services. This invitation is open to all working within maternity and newborn services, related organisations or with a responsibility or interest in reducing inequalities in the NHS. We warmly welcome parents or patient partners to join us.

Our ambition is for the network to serve as a community of practice, exploring the delivery of meaningful, actionable improvements to reduce inequity of outcomes for black, brown and racially minoritized women and families within the perinatal system. Health inequalities are not restricted to race and ethnicity and this network will seek to understand the wider distribution of burden by socioeconomic markers of inequality and the complex interplay of multiple markers of inequity.

We want to grow a vibrant and collaborative space to share learning and experiences, review emerging evidence and strengthen the impact of those working to reduce inequity in perinatal services. The event will be held on 13 July 2023, 12pm-2pm.

Aims and objectives

  • To provide a space for collaboration, discussion and sharing of learning related to reducing inequity for those working in perinatal care in the West and South West region.
  • To demonstrate a regional commitment to addressing inequalities in maternity and neonatal systems
  • To facilitate a psychologically safe space to explore cultural competency and diversity fluency
  • To act as a community of practice for those implementing inequality QI within the maternity and neonatal systems
