Our performance

Your opinion matters

The Care Quality Commission are visiting our service, and are looking for feedback from families who have used our maternity service between October 2021 and December 2022.

CQC uses stories from both satisfied and dissatisfied people to drive improvement in registered services.

We really value your feedback on our maternity services. Here's how we're doing.

National maternity survey 2022 results

The 2022 maternity survey reports on the experiences of women aged 16 or over who gave birth in an NHS hospital in England in February 2022. You can find out more about the survey on the CQC website.

The results allow maternity services to compare trends over time, helping to focus attention on areas of good performance and on those areas where it could be improved.

The survey reviews five areas of the maternity service including antenatal care, your labour and birth of your baby, care in hospital after birth, feeding your baby and care at home after the birth.

We are pleased to say that we have performed 'better than expected' in 6 questions and 'somewhat better than expected' in 3 questions and remained 'about the same' in 42 questions. We have no areas where we have performed 'worse than expected'. We have been able to identify areas where improvements can be made and will be working with our Maternity Voices Partnership to facilitate this.

You can see the reports below:

Friends and family test

The feedback we receive helps us to ensure that we provide the best quality care for all our patients. While you're in hospital with us, you'll be invited to complete a questionnaire which will give you the opportunity to have your say on the care you've received.
