    Hi Rebecca, I have read your comments on the report on Kirkup. I note that the other 3 commentators also called for Trusts to have more women & families (or that awful word ‘service user’) involvement. I am a community midwife whose Trust wants to bring in nursing uniforms for those of us that work in the community, disregarding the evidence of uniforms as psychological barriers etc. Their reason is to get us to comply with the corporate image. Our MSLC did a quick staw poll of 40 local Mums and took this to the meeting with HOM who dismissed their evidence also. I wonder what your take is on these issues? 1. disregarding a thorough evidence base particularly with reference to vulnerable women in our care. 2. dismissing the input of the local parents on the MSLC. Our local Childrens Centre manager also objects but has not yet had a reply to his comments..
    Many thanks
