Message from RCHT Maternity Services and Kernow Maternity Voices Partnership

This page was last updated: April 21st, 2022

We recognise the findings of the Ockenden review into maternity care at Shrewsbury and Telford may be a difficult read for many parents and pregnant people. We want to offer our support and to reassure you that our services here in Cornwall, have already been responding to the recommendations the review has made for services across the country.
Becoming pregnant and giving birth are life changing events that are remembered forever. We will always do everything we can, to give you all the support and guidance you need.

We strive to provide kind, compassionate, and safe care to all women, pregnant people and their families using our services; our maternity teams are here to do this. We hope you will always feel listened to and supported throughout your pregnancy but if you have any concerns at any time, please let us know so we can work together to get things right for you.

Our maternity services work closely with our Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP) to ensure your voices and views are being heard and service users are involved in decisions, as well as promoting openness and honesty in the way our maternity services are delivered. We will continue to work together to put in place the changes asked of us from the Ockenden findings.

You can talk to the MVP to share your feedback and experience anonymously, please fill in the experience survey or you can contact either of us directly with any concerns or questions.

For any medical concerns about your pregnancy, please speak to your midwife, or in an emergency call our 24 hour triage line on 01872 258000.
