Survey to help improve maternity services in North East London
Healthwatch Waltham Forest has joined with other local Healthwatch in North East London (Barking and Dagenham, Hackney, Havering, Newham, Redbridge and Tower Hamlets) to conduct a survey with the aim to ensure that local people are offered the best experience when using maternity services in North East London.
East London has the highest birth rate in the UK. Our health and care services must fully support this
growth and continue to ensure the best possible outcomes for mothers and babies. In particular, we are
looking to understand the experiences of people from minority or marginalised groups when
accessing and experiencing maternity services.
We will be asking you a few questions, based on your experience of pregnancy and/or giving birth in
North East London. By taking part in this survey, you will help shape NHS maternity services to make
them better for local people.
