Event summary

Health Innovation South West and Health Innovation West of England, in partnership with the Regional Maternity and Perinatal team, invite you to join us on 11 September from 10:00am 12:00pm via Microsoft Teams for the next Regional Perinatal Equity Network event. 

This collaborative network builds on the previous sessions over the past 3 years, with a renewed focus on supporting the implementation of the Local Maternity and Neonatal System (LMNS) Equity and Equality Action Plans. These plans provide a framework for our systems within the South West to address inequality within maternity and neonatal services. 

Aims & Objectives: 

  • Working in conjunction with the South West Regional Maternity team, we aim to provide a space for collaboration, discussion and sharing of learning related to reducing health inequality for those working in perinatal care in the West and South West region. 
  • To demonstrate a regional commitment to addressing inequality 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. 


  • Restore NHS services inclusively
  • Mitigate against digital exclusion e.g. personalised care plans being in a range of formats
  • Ensure datasets are complete and timely e.g. ethnic coding and putting in mothers postcode
  • Accelerate preventative programmes that engage those at greatest risk of poor health outcomes
