A national review of NHS maternity services has found that over 95% of mothers who gave birth this year at the Jessop Wing in Sheffield said they were treated with respect, kindness and dignity.

The assessment by the Care Quality Commission covered the care provided from the first access of pregnant women to maternity services to their sign-off by the midwife, usually around 10 days after the birth. A sample was taken of 243 Sheffield mothers last February.

Hilary Chapman, chief nurse at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Trust said: “Despite our results showing that overall our women receive excellent care, the survey highlighted a few areas in which we will look to improve on, such as postnatal care.”
