This report presents the national findings of the 2013 Scottish Maternity Care Survey. The results will be used to identify areas for improvement in maternity services in Scotland and to inform future service developments at local and national levels. The survey questionnaire was based on a maternity care questionnaire developed by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and used in the English maternity services survey 2013. The CQC questionnaire was modified before use to ensure its relevance to the Scottish context. Questionnaires were sent to a randomly selected sample of 4,964 women who gave birth in Scotland in February and March 2013. Overall 2,366 questionnaires were returned giving a survey response rate of 48%.
