Response to Care Quality Commission 2021 Maternity Survey:

Louise Barnett, Chief Executive, said: “The Maternity Survey highlights the hard work and dedication that has been shown by our teams through some incredibly difficult times. Given that it directly reflects the experiences of those we care for, I’m very pleased to see we are performing strongly in several areas, particularly those where women’s choices are placed at the heart of the services we provide.”

“Building on the examples of “outstanding practice” highlighted in the recent Care Quality Commission report on the Trust, the survey shows the progress that has been made in the transformation of our maternity services so far. We are determined to build on these significant steps forward as we know that there is still more to do, and we will keep focusing on those areas where further improvement is needed.” 

“I want to thank the whole team for their continued commitment to bringing about positive change and to providing excellent care to those we serve.”
