National maternity survey 2018

The 2018 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 ongoing 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, questionnaires will be sent out to a sample of women who gave birth this month (February 2018).

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.
