Women aged 16 years or older who give birth in October 2019 (and November in smaller maternity units and for homebirths) will be invited to participate in a national survey of their maternity experiences to help improve Ireland’s maternity services. Five maternity hospitals and 14 maternity units will participate in the first National Maternity Experience Survey. The survey is part of the National Care Experience Programme, a partnership between HIQA, the Health Service Executive (HSE) and the Department of Health. The survey will be open from February 1 to April 30 2020 and results will be publish online in Autumn 2020 (YourExperience.ie).
