NHS Oldham CCG Local Choice of Maternity Services

NHS Oldham CCG is committed to ensuring that women are informed about their ‘local choice offers’ for using maternity services. This choice can depend on what services the CCG commissions, as well as on clinical judgement about what is best for women and their baby/babies. However, for the majority of women, the choice of where to go for their maternity care is personal to them and Oldham CCG recognises that it is essential that women have the information they need to make this choice. The NICE Quality standards, pathways and clinical guidelines for ante-natal and postnatal produce recommendations for care during maternity, these include recommendations that;

  • Women are supported to access antenatal care ideally by 10 weeks
  • Women are cared for by a named midwife throughout their pregnancy
  • Women who smoke are given smoking cessation support
  • Women who need specialist support are identified and given additional attention
  • Women are kept fully informed at all stages of their pregnancy
  • Women are identified as needing and offered psychological support as appropriate
  • Women are supported to plan their place of birth and for those at low risk this is appropriate at home or in a midwifery led unit
  • Women who have had 1 or more caesarean sections have a documented discussion of the option to plan a vaginal birth
  • Women receive breastfeeding support

The maternity pathway is split into three stages:

  • antenatal
  • delivery
  • postnatal care

Women may choose their lead provider for each stage of the pathway, but the provider must be within the local choice the CCG has identified. The local choice for Oldham is detailed below along with further information regarding quality outcomes and patient experience for each organisation; other providers may be used, but only where there is a prior agreement with the CCG:
