Maternity survey results for Oxford University Hospitals Trust


Chief Nursing Officer comments on the Care Quality Commission findings

The results of the 2022 Maternity Survey have been published by the Care Quality Commission today with the Oxford University Hospitals Trust identified as performing better than average in two areas.  

The trust performed better than others in the sections focusing on ‘the start of your care in pregnancy’ and ‘information about where to have the baby’.

The questionnaire was split into eight sections.   Taken against last year’s results improvements were also seen in the areas of antenatal check-ups, birthing partner involvement and postnatal help and advice.

However, the Trust’s performance in the areas of “induction” and “care in hospital following the birth” were noted as needing improvement.

Sam Foster, Chief Nursing Officer at OUH said: “I want to thank everyone who has taken time to provide their feedback and let us know about their experience at OUH. We are pleased to see that people felt supported and involved in decisions about their care, particularly for those at the start of their pregnancy journey.

“There are also opportunities for us to improve in several areas and the results from the survey will provide us with a basis of an action plan where we can build on the positives and make further improvements where needed.”

Women aged 16 and over who had live births between 1 and 28 February last year were invited to join in the survey. 121 NHS Trusts in England participated.
