Maternal mental health including perinatal

What are the unmet needs / service gaps?

  • Local data not available directly from the Maternity Acute Service.
  • Sharing data between services is poor or not existing, this includes information governance issues
  • No local specialist perinatal teams. Service gaps include community perinatal  mental health services / teams including a perinatal psychiatrist and or perinatal specialist team
  • Robust identification of mental health illness is ad hoc
  • No clear unified pathway between services
  • Training is not coordinated for any profession
  • Family network is lost through current provision of care due to services being so far away
  • No integration of safeguarding
