Maternity and Neonatal Voices Partnership

Our partnership

Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) Maternity and Neonatal Voices Partnership (MNVP) is an independent working group, led by people with experience of local maternity and neonatal services.

The MNVP works with parents, healthcare professionals (midwives and doctors), commissioners (people who plan health services) and community organisations to help shape and improve local maternity and neonatal care. The MNVP provides a way for women and birthing people to share their experiences of care and what matters most to them. By hearing as many different experiences as possible, the MNVP can ensure that parents and families are at the heart of local maternity and neonatal care.

The MNVP is commissioned by the LLR NHS Integrated Care Board.
