The questions are framed within a set of 19 key domains and Peterborough ranked in the top quartile in most areas, and ahead of other Obstetrics and Gynaecology units in the East of England.

The only other unit to achieve this status was the Cardiothoracic Surgery department at Papworth. At that point the hospital had maintained a ranking of best Obstetric & Gynaecology Unit in the East of England region for three years consecutively also consistently in the top 10 training units in the country.
