More than 23,000 new mums were asked their opinions about three key areas covered – antenatal care, care during labour and birth and post-natal care.
Jill Galvani, director of nursing and midwifery at Wirral University Teaching Hospital said: “To be named as one of the top seven maternity units in England and the best in the north west by our health regulator is a tremendous achievement.
“Our hardworking staff takes great pride in the personalised and high quality service we provide for our mothers, their partners and their babies.
“We are delighted that the mothers who use our service rate us to highly.”
Almost 140 eligible NHS trusts took part in the CQC survey on maternity care.
Patients were asked a series of questions ranging from ‘dignity and respect’ to ‘kindness and understanding.’
