Maternity Focus Groups

Hywel Dda Health Board’s recently completed online/paper based maternity survey was well received with feedback showing both negative and positive experiences.

However, some negative comments have raised concerns.  Although the analysis of the information is not complete, the CHC have raised their concerns with the Health Board.  As a result, the CHC needs to get a better understanding of the issues.  Due to the fact that we are unable to engage directly with people who completed the anonymous survey, we aim to run a monthly maternity focus group.  The focus group will contain no more than ten people for a 60- 90 minute informal chat on the themes emerging from our survey.

Evidently, this series of “maternity focus groups” will be aimed at people who have given birth in hospital during the last 12 months.

Hywel Dda would like to know more information about the maternity services that you have received during the pandemic.
