South Western Sydney Local Health District (SWSLHD) Maternity Services is undertaking the Antenatal Redesign Project to improve the provision of safe, equitable care which is accessible to all women, and broaden the implementation of first trimester screening.

The project team would like to hear from GPs about their experiences with antenatal shared care and ideas on how to improve systems and processes between GPs and local hospitals.

Feedback can be given via an online focus group or a one-on-one interview.

Three working parties have been established as part of the project, and each include GPs from across the region.

The first working party is focused on consumer information and engagement, with the priority being women receiving timely and culturally specific information.

The second working party has an emphasis on the referral processes, with the last working party focusing on the coordination of first trimester screening for all women in SWSLHD.

Online focus groups sessions will be held on:

  • Monday, 22 May: 30pm to 1.30pm
  • Wednesday, 24 May: 12.30pm to 1.30pm
  • Monday, 29 May: 7pm to 8pm
  • Friday, 9 June: 12.30pm to 1.30pm

If you have any questions about the focus groups or would like to be involved, please contact Nicole Grieg – Antenatal Redesign Project Manager – via Nicole.grieg@health.nsw.gov.au or 0419 440 943.
