Meeting for those wanting to take an active role in the campaign to ‘Save the Midwife’. The main focus of the day will be to plan for the new Midwifery Council. Though we’ve made a good start, we now have a list of tasks that need to be done so please do come along as the more people who can help the better. Other items on the agenda will include how to promote the campaign including local and national protests against the NMC and Department of Health’s undermining of the midwifery profession and suggestions for strengthening midwifery locally and nationally.
This is a meeting for all activists who want to be involved in the campaign whether ARM-members or non-ARM members and parents as well as midwives and birth professionals are encouraged to attend as this issue affects maternity service users as well as midwives and their colleagues.
Please bring a packed lunch. Tea and coffee will be provided but do bring refreshments (cake? biscuits?) to share if you wish.
The venue is only 5 minutes walk from the rail and bus stations and easy to find by car. There’s a small car park http://www.peterboroughquakers.org.uk/how-to-find-us/
