asked Her Majesty's Government:
How their outline of health improvement programmes which reveal a substantive input from midwives and users will be implemented to enable the voice of midwives to be heard.
The development of health improvement programmes is led by the health authority in partnership with the whole range of local interests, including those who provide local services for the National Health Service. This will include staff working in NHS trusts and primary care. Midwives will be encouraged to contribute on issues which impact on their work areas.
