New mothers praised the maternity care at a large county hospital.

Patients have given positive feedback about their experience with University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust, according to an annual survey published today.

The survey, carried out by the Care Quality Commission, asked 21,000 women about their experiences of working in 121 trusts across England.

New moms were asked about all aspects of their maternity care, including antenatal, delivery and postnatal care.

The results show that University Hospital Sussex was ranked ninth in the overall feedback-based scoring system.

It was rated higher than many of the 121 participating trusts on a number of issues.

No area of ​​trust was rated below average.

This is like the Royal Sussex County Hospital maternity services were called “inadequate” health services Commission on the quality of medical care in 2021.

At the time, it was found that the hospital was “understaffed to ensure the safety of women and children”.

Inspectors also found that there was not always adequate control of the risk of infection and that staff “did not keep proper records of care”.

Back in 2021, it was found that the service handled security incidents poorly and did not always learn from them.

University Hospitals Sussex is a trust responsible for seven hospitals in Sussex, including the Royal Sussex County Hospital, The Princess Royal and Worthing Hospital.​​

“Our maternity teams should be proud of the results of this year’s survey,” said Emma Chambers, director of the midwifery trust.

“They show that the women and people in our care receive excellent standards of care from our dedicated staff.

“In particular, feedback from users of our services shows that they felt they were listened to, treated with dignity and respect, and that any concerns they had were taken very seriously and dealt with.”

Almost 330 women and men from University Hospitals Sussex took part in the survey in February 2021.
