Reading Maternity Voices (MSLC) is a committee or team of service users, service user representatives, midwives, doctors and commissioners. We work together to review and contribute to the development of local maternity services. We’re an independent body, reporting to the local Federation of GP Commissioning Groups that commissions maternity services.
The volunteer service user reps, meet monthly for either a formal meeting with the whole committee, a review and planning session or a feedback session in the community. You can also find the user reps out in the community collecting feedback from women and their partners about their experiences of using local maternity services. Feedback can also be given via an online survey, when we walk the patch on our postnatal wards and through the use of focus groups.
The formal committee meets quarterly. Between these meetings, the service user reps host a feedback event in the community and then gather to collate feedback, plan the formal committee meeting agenda and discuss any themes arising.
