Equity and equality five year action plan
Equity for parents, carers and babies from minority communities and those living in the most deprived areas
Our vision is a maternity care service that is truly accessible to everyone in Dorset. From the moment you start planning to have a baby, throughout your pregnancy, and after your baby arrives, we want to make sure you get care that is safe, fair and personalised to you.
