Parents Give Their Views

Sefton Council’s Public Health team is thanking more than 200 parents from across the borough for completing a Maternity Services Survey.

Parents in Sefton were asked for their views and experiences of maternity services through a survey developed by the Maternity Service Liaison Committee (MSLC) and its Parents Task Group.

Cllr Paul Cummins, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Older People and Health, said: “The MSLC, the Parents Task Group and Sefton Council’s Public Health are grateful to everyone who took the time to complete the survey and the findings will be used to help support the development of local maternity services.”

Copies of the survey were available across the borough through local Children’s Centres, GP practices and voluntary organisations; they were also available on Sefton Council’s website.

Dr Janet Atherton, Sefton Council’s Director of Public Health, said: “It’s great news that so many parents who have had a baby in the last 18 months have given their views.

“The survey focused on the care women received throughout their pregnancy from their first appointment with their GP or Midwife through to advice given when going home with their baby.”

The results of the survey are currently being analysed and a report will be available later in the year. The report will be fed back to the appropriate agencies to increase standards across Sefton’s maternity services and to help make sure all women in the borough having a baby receive the best experience possible.
