Primary Maternity lead appointed

Southern DHB has made a significant move forward in implementing its Integrated Primary Maternity System of Care with the appointment of a new programme lead.

Heather LaDell has already begun meeting with midwives, mothers, health care professionals and community groups across the district, introducing the new primary maternity system of care. She will also help implement a new sustainability package to better support the district’s community-based Lead Maternity Carer (LMC) midwifery workforce and will work with communities to design and develop new Maternal and Child Hubs.

“Collaboration and communication will be key to the success of the new integrated primary maternity system of care,” Heather says.
