Maternity and Neonatal
Voices Partnership (MNVP)

What is an MNVP?

An MNVP listens to the experiences of women and families, and brings together service users, staff and other stakeholders to plan, review and improve maternity and neonatal care.

MNVPs ensure that service users’ voices are at the heart of decision-making in maternity and neonatal services by being embedded within the leadership of provider trusts and feeding into the LMNS (which in turn feeds into ICB decision-making).

This influences improvements in the safety, quality, and experience of maternity and neonatal care.
