The latest national survey on maternity service standards across UK hospitals from independent regulator Care Quality Commission (CQC), shows that Ashford and St Peter's continues to maintain high standards in maternity care.
The 2015 survey of women's experiences of maternity services involved 133 NHS acute trusts in England, with responses received from more than 20,000 service users. A total of 157 patients, who received care and treatment at Ashford and St Peter's, took part. Their responses to questions across themes such as access to care, personal choice and type of birth were converted into a score of out ten, with the Trust's maternity staff receiving an overall rating of 8.3/10, a consistent rating since the last survey conducted in 2013.
