Counties Manukau Health (CM Health) is pleased to provide the Women’s Health and Newborn Annual Report for the July 2019 - December 2020 calendar year.
This report describes practices, projects and achievements that reflect CM Health’s commitment to equitable and quality care for the women and whaanau we serve. It also covers the recommendations of the National Maternity Monitoring Group and the Perinatal and Maternal Mortality Review Committee.
We are proud of our people who work in maternity services: hospital, community and lead maternity carer (LMC) based. We are proud of the work they do supporting the health of women living in the Counties Manukau district and their whaanau. Our teams work under challenging conditions – ageing facilities, workforce shortages and the increasing clinical complexity that arises from obesity and the many socioeconomic determinants that impact on our community.
