Maternity Services has recently gained the distinction of being certified as a provider of high quality health and social care information by The Information Standard scheme.
Mid Essex Maternity Services met the scheme criteria of producing safe and reliable health and social care information, and as a consequence, the organisation has been awarded The Information Standard quality mark, which is displayed on its literature and website which illustrates to the public that its information can be trusted. According to a survey carried out by The Information Standard, the majority of the general public (72%) believe that they would be better able to manage their own and their family’s health if they had quick and easy access to health information they could trust. The Information Standard, which is supported by the Department of Health, was launched to provide this kind of assurance.
MEHT Maternity Services shall hold responsibility for the accuracy of the information they publish and neither the scheme operator or the scheme owner shall have any responsibility whatsoever for costs losses or direct or indirect damages or costs arising from inaccuracy of information or omissions in information published on the website on behalf of MEHT Maternity Services.
