The post holders will act as an independent Maternity Voices Advisor and have a key role in the successful implementation of the recommendations of Better Births, Public and Patient Involvement in the NHS, and Integrated Governance, together with wider strategic involvement in all aspects of maternity care education, provision and policy.

The post holders will be able to flag concerns of Dorset’s women and families who are currently within the Maternity pathway, or have been in the last 2 years, to members of the Maternity Partnership Group, local hospital trusts and Hospital Boards.  

Dorset CCG will provide support, guidance and/or training appropriate to this role when required.
