We will ask you to rate and comment on your experience by completing our paper survey. Your feedback is anonymous and will be used to improve our service. It is free to respond.

Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust works in partnership with Envoy Messenger to deliver this service. If you do not wish to participate you can simply reply ‘STOP’ when you receive the message. We will not send you any further texts.

We are carrying out a survey between April and August 2022 to look at the experiences of women who have recently given birth think about their experiences of antenatal care, childbirth and postnatal care. This will include young mother’s aged 16 and 17. This survey is part of a national programme to improve experiences of maternity care. 

Your feedback matters and is important to us. We will use the survey results and feedback to understand the experience of the maternity care we provide so that we can make improvements for all new mother’s and babies.   

If you are invited to take part, the trust will pass on your contact details (name, mobile telephone number and postal address) so researchers can get in touch with you in a few months’ time about the survey.

The survey is being carried out by an independent survey contractor, Picker Institute Europe on behalf of the Trust, the Care Quality Commission and the survey co-ordination centre at Ipsos MORI. 

Taking part in the survey is voluntary and all answers are confidential. The results of the survey will be presented in a form that does not allow any individual’s answers to be identified.
