Women's Health and Newborn Annual Report


The Women's Health and Newborn Annual Report 2016-2017 has evolved this year from the Maternity Quality and Safety Programme (MQSP) Annual Report produced over the previous four years as part of the Ministry of Health (MoH) requirements to report on activities implemented as part of the MQSP. As in the past, this report describes practice, projects and achievements which reflect the recommendations from the National Maternity Monitoring Group (NMMG) and the Perinatal and Maternal Mortality Review Committee (PMMRC). The activity described in the report also aligns with the Counties Manukau Health (CM Health) Maaori Action Health Plan and the New Zealand Maternity Standards.

Our report has broadened its scope from maternity quality and safety to include a wider focus on all care provided for women and their whaanau by Women's Health, including a new gynaecology section. We continue to strengthen our effort on actions that will improve the health of Counties Manukau women by identifying and acting on opportunities to achieve better outcomes that meet their needs.

Counties Manukau Health (CM Health) remains committed to the needs of our community and strives to provide appropriate, accessible, quality clinical care to our women, babies and whaanau.​
