We want to all women and pregnant people in north east London to have the best experience when using maternity services.

To do that we want to better understand the choices you are making, or made in terms of your maternity care and your hospital or birth centre. By taking part in this survey, you will help shape NHS maternity services to make them better for a wide range of local people in the future.

The survey is led by Healthwatch, an independent organisation who represent the voice of local people on health and social care issues. We
work to make sure your voice is heard to improve care. Healthwatch will share what they learn from the survey responses with the North East London Local Maternity and Neonatal System – a partnership of organisations, women and their families working together to deliver improvements in maternity services in north east London.

This survey is anonymous (no one will see any of your personal information); however, at the end of this survey, you will have the option to leave us your name and contact details, in case you want to keep in touch this is so we can let you know the outcome of the survey and give you the opportunity to be involved in designing future services. This will be stored separately from your survey answers.
