Preface The Workforce Project Board was established to address issues and recommendations made by the independent External Review of Maternity Care1 in the Counties Manukau district. The group is comprised of self employed and Counties Manukau DHB employed midwives. It’s function is to provide advice to and complete actions on behalf of the Maternity Review Project Board to address relevant workforce matters from the External Review.

The Workforce Project Board commissioned this report from the DHB to identify how many self employed midwives would be required if 75% of women are to be managed by self employed midwives, where those services are likely to be required between the different localities and consider any other characteristics of the population or workforce that are relevant to the workforce capacity required to improve access to midwives and the ability of pregnant women to engage with a midwife by 12 weeks gestation.

The Workforce Project Board is indebted to Keming Wang, Senior Strategic Business Analyst, Counties Manukau DHB for his expertise in the analysis and forecast modelling of the workforce needs and the pulling together of this report including the graphical presentations.

Any queries or feedback on the report can be emailed to Thelma Thompson, Director of Midwifery, Counties Manukau DHB at thelma.thompson@middlemore.co.nz
