Kingston’s maternity service placed top five in London following National Maternity Survey

12 January 2023

This week, the Care Quality Commission has published findings of the National Maternity Survey 2022.

A total of 200 service users who received care in Kingston Hospital’s maternity services took part in the survey in February last year, which invited them to rate their antenatal care, experience of labour and birth, and postnatal care.

The results put Kingston Maternity in the top five London Trusts for all eight parameters which are assessed and categorised as follows:

  • The start of your care during pregnancy
  • Antenatal check-ups
  • During your pregnancy
  • Your labour and birth
  • Staff caring for you
  • Care in hospital after birth
  • Feeding your baby
  • Care at home after birth

Nic Kane, Chief Nurse for Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust said: “We are really proud of our results in the National Maternity Survey 2022, which are testament to the hard work and dedication of our maternity teams. I would like to thank my colleagues for all the work they do which places us within the best performing trusts for maternity services in London. Thanks also to everyone who responded to the survey and shared their valuable feedback.”
