Telling someone in the NHS about your experiences of local maternity services

You may want someone from the Royal Berkshire Foundation Trust – Maternity Services to know how you individually feel about care you have received. Who can help…

You can write to Gill Valentine, Director of Midwifery with feedback or in case of a complaint.

You can contact the Consultant Midwives – they will explain what your choices are and how they can help (contact details are being updated as at November 2019).

You can also contact Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) for advice.
