Easy Read Version

In 2008 in our New Directions consultation document, we opened a conversation on the best way to deliver services in Belfast over the next decade. This consultation is part of the next steps. It represents a formal consultation on specific proposals for service change in the delivery of maternity services. Our priority is, and will remain, the safety of women throughout all the stages of their journey.

Choosing where, and how, to give birth is an important decision for mothers-to-be. The Belfast Health and Social Care Trust is committed to ensuring that all women have their birthing experience in an environment which is staffed to meet their needs, with appropriate clinical linkages for delivery and access to post-natal and neonatal care as required. The Trust also wants to offer women the possibility of using a midwife-led unit which would enhance their choice in where they can deliver their babies.
