Continuity of Carer Survey

Closes 1 Feb 2019

Opened 14 Dec 2018

Overview

We would be grateful if you could kindly take a few minutes to complete this short survey to let us know about your choice and experience of continuity of care received in maternity services.

Continuity of carer means that there is consistency in the midwife or clinical team that provides hands on care for a woman and her baby throughout the three phases of her maternity journey:

• Pregnancy

• Labour

• The postnatal period

Secondly, it enables the co-ordination of a woman’s care, so that a named individual takes responsibility for ensuring all the needs of a woman and her baby are met, at the right time and in the right place.

Thirdly, it enables the development of a relationship between the woman and the clinician who cares for her over time.

The Maternity Voices Partnership is a group of healthcare and early years professionals and volunteers. The Partnership will be engaging with people who use maternity services working together to ensure that maternity services respond to the needs of expectant mothers, fathers, their newborn babies and their families.

Your feedback

The Maternity Voices Partnership is committed to treating people fairly and would like to ensure that it provides services which are appropriate and accessible to everyone.  To do this we need to consult as widely as possible with different communities, groups and individuals from across the whole of Nottinghamshire to ensure that all voices are heard.

The group gives you the opportunity to share your feedback on the care you have received. The information you provide is important to help improve maternity services in the future and comments received will be shared with members of this group. Any personal information you provide to us is retained by us in a way which wholly protects your anonymity. This information is retained for 6 years and then securely destroyed.
