New mums in Sussex have praised their care at University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust in the Care Quality Commission’s latest annual maternity survey.
The #Maternity2022 survey asked 21,000 women and people from across the country about all aspects of their maternity care, including ante-natal, labour and birth, to post-natal care.
The results show University Hospitals Sussex performed better than most of the 121 participating Trusts in a number of questions, while in no area was the Trust rated below average.
“Our maternity teams should be very proud of this year’s survey results,” said director of midwifery Emma Chambers. “They show women and people in our care receive excellent standards of care from our dedicated staff.
“In particular, the feedback from our service users shows they felt listened to, treated with dignity and respect, and any concerns they had were taken extremely seriously and acted upon.”
Nearly 330 women and people at University Hospitals Sussex participated in the annual survey in February 2021. The full results published today (11 January) are available on the CQC and NHS Surveys websites.
