The Royal Surrey Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP) is seeking a passionate and enthusiastic Vice-Chair to join the MVP leadership team.
The MVP works to ensure that the voices of women, birthing people and their families are at the centre of improvements to maternity and neonatal care.
As Vice-Chair of the MVP, you will work in partnership with the Chair to lead the MVP, regularly going out into the community to hear directly from parents about their experiences of maternity and neonatal services and share this with the leadership team at the Royal Surrey’s maternity unit and with the Local Maternity & Neonatal System (LMNS).
You will regularly seek feedback from as wide a range of people as possible, including at local baby/toddler groups, infant feeding support groups and the hospital’s maternity wards (known as Walk the Patch). You will then use this insight, in partnership with the Chair, to inform the development of more equitable maternity and neonatal services for all.
You will support the Chair with the day-to-day running of the MVP, building relationships and making connections within the local community as well as with staff at the Royal Surrey’s maternity and neonatal unit, and the LMNS. When significant feedback themes arise, there will also be an opportunity to lead on individual projects to improve local services.
The Vice-Chair is compensated for their time in line with NHS England guidance at an hourly rate of £18.75 per hour for 16 hours per month.
Please contact the MVP team for any questions about the role, or your application.
