Welcome to the

Family Psychological Support Service

We’re a specialist service supporting families involved with the Independent Maternity Review into cases of serious concern at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust.

We aim to be a flexible, responsive service that takes a collaborative approach to designing a journey through the service that works for you. We are a team of skilled, experienced psychological therapists, and have access to a range of support options alongside evidence based talking therapies.

We appreciate that taking the first step to access psychological support for your experiences may be a challenging one. We will work at your pace, and as these events have likely had an impact across your extended family, we can offer support to your whole family, including those under 18.

Please take a look at some of the information contained here and if you wish to discuss further please call us on 0115 200 1000 or send us an email to refer yourself at enquiries@fpssnottingham.co.uk.
