All 44 of the Local Maternity Systems (LMS) from across England have been invited to provide representation at the LMS digital leaders forum.
This group has an important role in supporting our projects and contributing requirements from professional stakeholders across the country. As well as supporting local maternity systems to develop local visions and plans for digital, this network also supports the Better Births ambition of providers and commissioners working together to agree common standards and protocols.
In early 2019, over 120 digital leaders attended our digital maturity regional events, held around the country. These events were an important step in building regional collaboration and supporting a drive to increase digital maturity amongst maternity systems.
We will continue to support the local maternity systems digital leaders forum throughout 2020 with further meetings of the group where digital leaders will be encouraged to establish new connections, gain new insights and build their networks by working with other maternity services across the country.
