New mums have rated King’s Mill Hospital, Sutton-in-Ashfield, as the best hospital in the East Midlands for giving birth, as well as the best in the region for the staff that helped them to deliver their babies, according to a recent patient satisfaction survey.
New data from the Care Quality Commission’s national survey of maternity experience shows that Sherwood Forest Hospitals, which runs King’s Mill Hospital, is the best performing trust in the local area when it comes to women giving birth— joint with United Lincolnshire Hospitals — and joint best for maternity staff.
Some of the areas in which the the hospital scored highly included the promotion of skin-to-skin contact after birth, partners being able to be involved in the birth as much as they want to be, and staff treating new mums with respect and dignity during the birth and speaking to them in a way that they understood.
