You, your partner and family can complete a survey to tell the NHS about your experiences, the support you received, what worked well and any areas that could have been improved. The survey is part of a project to improve maternity services across the South East.
There are a number of ways local people and stakeholders can stay up to date and share their views on what’s happening in health and care in the East Sussex Better Together area, and a recent addition to the range of opportunities is the East Sussex Collaborative Health and Wellbeing Stakeholder group.

Their valuable insight helps ensure local people’s views and experiences shape services, and keep local people at the centre of what we do.
