Providing Safe Maternity Services in Surrey

Providing Safe Maternity Services in Surrey

We were extremely saddened to read the recently published report into maternity services at Shrewsbury and Telford and understand that our families in Surrey may have concerns about their care and that of their baby.

We would like to assure you that the safety of our birthing services is our top priority across Surrey Heartlands’ Local Maternity and Neonatal System. The maternity services provided by Royal Surrey County Hospital, Ashford and St Peter’s Hospital, Epsom and St Helier’s Hospitals, and East Surrey Hospital are all committed to providing safe birthing services, and as a system we continue to work together to improve our services. We are also reviewing the recommendations from the Ockenden Report to ensure we are following the latest best practice and we will be sharing our response to the Report in the near future.

If you have any queries about your individual care and support please talk to your midwife, or you may wish to contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service at your local hospital (look for PALS on their website) or your local Maternity Voices Partnership who can be found on Facebook.
