Mums to give hospital feedback

PREGNANT women and new mums are being asked to rate the quality of the maternity care they receive from Worthing Hospital.

From October 1 women will be able to give instant feedback on the care they receive using a free text service.

Dr Cate Bell, the trust’s Clinical Effectiveness Midwife, said: “The women we care for are the best judges of how well we look after them, so it’s really important that they can all tell us what they think quickly and easily. You only need a few seconds to complete the test, so we hope everyone will take part and help us to deliver our services in the way they want us to. When women tell us what they think, we can prioritise the improvements they most want to see.”

The delivery suite at Worthing Hospital was given a £350,000 upgrade this year in response to a survey of local mums.
