The development of the National Strategic Approach to Maternity Services (NSAMS) will soon begin round 2 of consultation.

The consultation will involve face to face workshops, an online survey and opportunity to submit online responses. In addition, there will also be a series of webinars to enable greater access for those in rural and remote areas or those unable to attend face to face workshops. Information regarding these webinars will be provided in the near future.

Registrations for these consultations are now OPEN. The Perth Workshop is scheduled for 15 October 2018, and Bunbury 6 November 2018.
