The Norfolk and Waveney Local Maternity and Neonatal System (LMNS)
The purpose of the Local Maternity and Neonatal System (LMNS) is to bring together commissioners, providers and service users to develop and implement a locally owned plan. The LMNS is overseen by a board that includes midwives, provider staff, consultants, NHS England, Norfolk and Waveney ICB, UEA and Public Health.
The local plan aims to deliver the recommendations of the Better Births Review 2016), Saving Babies Lives Care Bundle V2 and Ockenden Recommendations (2022).
The LMNS Programme is underpinned by the Better Births Vision for Maternity Services: to become safer, more personalised, kinder, professional and more family-friendly; where every woman has access to information to enable her to make decisions about her care; and where she and her baby can access support that is centred around their individual needs and circumstances.
And for all staff to be supported to deliver care which is women centred, working in high-performing teams, in organisations which are well led and in cultures which promote innovation, continuous learning, and break down organisational and professional boundaries.
