A workshop held on 14 January 2015 brought together people who use and provide services for people with long term conditions in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan to share their views about the future.
Through better engagement with our population, better use of technology, and new ways of working, everyone at the workshop was asked to describe “what a new maternal health service could look like in the future?”
Discussions during the workshop were captured in the form of visual minutes.
The first step in developing any new model of care is to describe a vision of what a future service should achieve. Working with Dr Jenny Thomas, our maternal health lead, we used the information from our workshop, together with published best practice from Wales, the UK and the wider world, to develop a Shaping Our Future Wellbeing shared vision of maternal health care in the future.
With this vision in mind, we can now begin to explore the changes that will be needed to make the vision a reality, and so begin to describe in detail a new model of care for maternal health.
