Hospital maternity services rated highly
NEW mothers at Salisbury District Hospital have rated the quality of care and level of support they receive highly in an independent survey of NHS maternity units.
The survey by the Care Quality Commission looked at women’s experiences of care provided by hospital and community staff from early pregnancy to four weeks after the birth.
When compared with all 137 providers of maternity services, Salisbury District Hospital scored well and was in the better performing category in the majority of the areas women were questioned about. The survey was based on 185 responses from women who gave birth in February this year.
Fiona Coker, head of midwifery and neonatal services at Salisbury, said: “Women’s views are very important to us and we are very pleased to hear that they think we are offering a high quality, responsive service.”
