Local Maternity & Neonatal Systems (LMNS) were introduced in 2017 following a national review of maternity services. The vision for the Local Maternity & Neonatal Systems is set out in the Better Births Report.
Local Maternity & Neonatal Systems are partnerships between all organisations involved in maternity and neonatal care. The partners work together to deliver appropriate services for the population they work with.
The Lincolnshire LMNS is a partnership between;
- Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP)
- United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust
- Lincolnshire NHS Integrated Care Board
- Maternity & Neonatal Programme Team (Better Births Lincolnshire)
- Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
- Lincolnshire NHS Community Health Services
- Lincolnshire County Council
- East Midlands Academic Health Science Network
- East Midlands NHS Neonatal Operational Delivery Network
- NHS East Midlands
The partners involved in the Lincolnshire LMNS want to develop innovative new services to make sure you are well supported and informed at every stage of your pregnancy, enabling you to make decisions about your care which are best suited to you and your family. We are working together to ensure that it’s not only easier for you to access high-quality care, but that you are also able to choose the services most suited to your needs.
