2017 National Maternity survey

01 February 2017

The 2017 Maternity Survey is part of a national survey programme run by CQC to collect feedback on the experiences of women using NHS maternity services across the country.  The results contribute to CQC’s assessment of NHS performance as well as on-going monitoring and inspections.  The programme also provides valuable feedback for NHS trusts, which they can then use to improve patient experience.

Between April and August 2017 questionnaires will be sent out to a sample of women who gave birth in February 2017.

Obtaining feedback from patients is vital for bringing about improvements in the quality of care and this is an excellent way for women to directly influence services locally.

If you have any queries or questions about supporting the promotion of this survey, please contact patient.survey@cqc.org.uk

While contagious viruses are active year-round, winter is a prime time for norovirus, colds, influenza (flu), and other respiratory illnesses.

 

These infections are highly contagious, so we urge people to stay away unless their visit is absolutely essential to help reduce the spread of infection within our hospitals.

Hospitals are full of sick people, many of them frail and elderly, so bringing germs into a hospital is the worst thing you can do.  We have an active programme of infection prevention but we can’t spot visitors who really shouldn’t be here.  Please stay at home if you’re unwell to help aid the wellbeing and recovery of our patients.
