Event description
Want to be part of a network to explore improvements, reduce inequity outcomes for racially minoritised women within the perinatal system?

About this event

Join us as we launch the Regional Perinatal Equity Network at this inaugural event. In response to the growing commitment to work together to address inequality within maternity and neonatal services South West and West of England AHSNs have joined together to host this network. 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 minoritised 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.

Aims & 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

Register your place to be part of the discussions to shaping change for our communities.

We are one of 15 AHSNs across the country, established by NHS England in 2013. Here in the West of England, our AHSN has earned a reputation for its ambitious, joined-up vision for healthcare innovation and transformation.

With our unique expertise and cross-sector connections, we understand both the ‘push and pull’ of demand on healthcare innovation. We actively nurture an innovation ecosystem around health and care, removing obstacles and bringing diverse groups together to conceive and maximise new ways of working.
