MATERNITY services at Whiston Hospital provide the highest level of safe care, according to a recent patient safety assessment.

Assessors for the NHS Litigation Authority have awarded the trust a level three status for its quality and safety of care, the best score achievable.

The rigorous assessment process checks for compliance against a set of national standards and means the trust takes a focused and proactive approach to assuring the safety of mothers and their babies.

Sue Redfern, director of nursing, midwifery and governance said: “This is a really excellent achievement. The assessment reflects the commitment of our maternity staff to ensure that mothers and babies receive the very highest standards of care, each and every time.”
