The Clinical Commissioning Groups across Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes are urging local residents to provide feedback about their experiences of local maternity services.
The survey closes at the end of the month, and so far over 800 people have contributed either online or in person at one of the 15 drop in sessions held at children’s centres across Bedfordshire.
The Clinical Commissioning Groups are working with local service users to transform maternity services in the area to make them safer, kinder, and more personalised and to deliver the NHS England recommendations of the Better Births initiative as part of the Maternity Transformation Programme.
In particular, women who are currently using maternity services or have used them in the last five years are urged to complete an online survey. The survey can be found on https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MaternityBigQ or found on twitter using: #BLMK or #MaternityBigQ
The survey is a fantastic opportunity for anybody that wants to share their experiences and really help the CCG’s to hear the voices of local mums in the area.
Ashanna, a service user from Dunstable said: “This is a really great chance for any mum that has something to share about their pregnancy journey, whether it is good or bad you can help future mums and babies. Both my birth plans were so different. I just wanted to share my story. I thought first time mums could benefit from my experiences.”
Residents have until Saturday 31 March to complete the survey. If you need any help or further information please contact: Matthew.Gray@bedfordshireccg.nhs.uk.
