Understanding Views on Maternity and Neonatal Care in Leeds

Aug 9, 2013

Enventure has recently worked with NHS Leeds South and East Clinical Commissioning Group to assist them in conducting a survey of users of maternity and neonatal care in Leeds.


Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust is considering changing the way that maternity and neonatal services are delivered in Leeds from 2016, moving all services for birth and specialist care for babies after birth (neonatal care) to Leeds General Infirmary (LGI) and having none of these services available at St James’s University Hospital.


The survey covered the experiences of those who had recently had a baby in Leeds, including visits to hospital before, during and after the birth, in order to understand how they would view and react to these proposed changes. In total, 453 people took part in the survey.


Enventure Research provided in depth analysis of the survey results, coding all open-ended responses in order to accurately understand the views and attitudes of respondents. A full research report was provided, providing clear findings and recommendations.
