  • Provides care to women as individuals, with a focus on their needs and preferences, for both physical and mental health
  • Invests in improving continuity of care and carer, with a strong emphasis on midwifery-led care for normal pregnancy and birth
  • Provides care which meets the clinical quality standards for all women and their babies
  • Values and takes on board feedback from the women, their families and the local community we look after and their families in order to drive continuous improvement in the quality of care
