CQC encourages women to share experiences of #YourMaternityCare

Published on: Monday, 15-February-2016

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent health and social care regulator in England. CQC inspect and rate maternity services, including antenatal services, pregnancy units, maternity assessment centres, labour wards, postnatal services and neonatal services.

There are nearly 700,000 live births in England each year, and while CQC’s most recent Maternity Survey found that most expectant and new mothers are experiencing better maternity care when compared to the results from previous years, they know that know women will have had varied personal experiences. 
If you are pregnant or recently used maternity services, CQC want you to tell them about the care you received, good or bad. CQC inspectors can’t be everywhere at once and your information will help them decide when, where and what service to inspect. By telling CQC about your experiences, you could stop poor care happening to someone else.
