Maternity Services - Equity and Equality

Together with Healthwatch across North East London, Healthwatch Tower Hamlets is looking to understand the experiences of patients from minority or marginalised groups when accessing and experiencing maternity services in North East London. We are working to gather feedback on maternity services from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic women.

The project aims to explore the experiences of women who have worse health outcomes and will look at language, behaviours, assumptions and stereotypes and will feed into a Five Year Equity and Equality Action Plan. The Maternity Experiences Equity and Equality project is surveying participants based on experience from pregnancy, miscarriage, still birth, pregnancy termination, foetal abnormalities, and mental health during pregnancy. Data from these surveys will be used to help shape NHS services to make them better for local people.

Patient Experience – Your Voice Counts

Healthwatch Tower Hamlets is here to gather your experiences of health and care services. Each quarter our service captures 1,200 pieces of patient experience feedback from residents. We analyse and code each experience, translating your voice into a quarterly report, quantifying and highlighting themes and trends in Tower Hamlets.

This reports feeds into discussions and meetings with providers, commissioners and decision makers, enabling Healthwatch to hold them to account and ensure the patient voice is not just heard, but is listened to and has clear influence and impact.
