TRFT’s maternity services awarded funding

11 Mar 2014 12:29:03

The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust has been awarded funding for care for pregnant women and new mums at Rotherham Hospital. 

Rotherham’s maternity services are proud of the high praise received from its patients*1 and the £191,110 of capital funding from the Department of Health’s Improving Maternity Care Settings Fund will further enhance the experience for patients. 

Audra Muxlow, Head of Midwifery at TRFT, commented: “Maternity services here are already excellent, however, we constantly seek to become even better. 

“We will use feedback from patients and their relatives to make the enhancements and are very excited and grateful to the DoH for this support.” 

The funding will enable the Trust to ensure that even more specialised and built-for-purpose areas are available for planned Caesarean sections and focus on further enhancing privacy and dignity, in particular when it comes to the post-natal care and supporting breastfeeding, so that the Trust can continue to improve the experience for new mums and their families. 

The enhancements to maternity care are expected to be in place before the end of 2014. 

*1–As part of the national  Friends and Family Test, TRFT’s maternity areas scored a Net promoter Score (NPS) of 82 for the month of January 2014. NPS is calculated using the proportion of patients who would strongly recommend the Trist’s maternity services minus those who would not recommend, or are indifferent.  Hospitals will score between -100 and +100 and a score greater than zero means that patients would recommend the hospital (the higher the score the better).
