The 2010 survey of women’s experiences of maternity services involved 142 NHS acute trusts and 2 primary care trusts (PCTs) in England. Responses were received from over 25,000 women, a response rate of 52%. Women were eligible for the survey if they had a live birth between 1− 28 February 2010 and were aged 16 years or older. Women who gave birth in a hospital, birth centre or maternity unit, or who had a home birth, were eligible. 

A similar survey of women using maternity services was also carried out in 2007. This document provides tables showing the national results for both surveys, where possible. Results at trust level are available in feedback reports for individual trusts.
