Abstract Introduction
With a constantly evolving health system and shrinking financial envelope it is increasingly difficult to continue to deliver effective services to support the needs of children and families in maternal and early years - we must work together, maximising all available assets and resources to achieve more. Method The 'Maternal, Infant and Child Health” (MICH) Partnership was established by Public Health South Tees following the 2012 NHS reforms, which resulted in fragmented commissioning and delivery of maternal and infant services. Led and driven by Public Health South Tees, MICH been instrumental in driving forward improvements to maternal and early years support in South Tees, challenging partners in the sector to work together to achieve more. The partnership leads the local maternal and early years system, having strong and committed representation from stakeholders.
Results
Just a few of our acheivementts since 2015 include: 366 less women smoking during pregnancy Women are screened for alcohol use during pregnancy and get immediate early supportA sub-regional campaign raising awareness of the dangers of drinking during pregnancySignificant increases in referrals to talking therapies Conclusion Partners are really proud of these achievements and these could not have been achieved without MICH providing the platform for collaboration. There are still lots of challenges ahead and the partnership is presently finalising a new action plan, looking at how we can make the best impact with our local assets in areas such as recommencing smoking following pregnancy, parenting and normalisation of breastfeeding.
