National maternity survey
Maternity care at Guy’s and St Thomas’ is among the best in London, according to the recent Care Quality Commission’s National Maternity Survey.
The Trust scored well in a number of key categories. These related to communication, treating women with respect and dignity during labour and birth, and cleanliness of the unit.
Maxine Spencer, Director of Midwifery, says: “Whilst we are very pleased with the positive improvements, we recognise that there is still work to do and are developing an action plan in response to what women have told us.”
