Obstetrics and Gynaecology

Obstetrics and Gynaecology consists of antenatal clinics with ultrasound scanning and an assessment unit.

Seven consultant obstetricians lead the care of women with high risk pregnancies, while community midwives manage the care of the women deemed to be low risk. Intrapartum care for all deliveries is provided by midwives based in the maternity department.

The maternity unit has a total of 45 beds: 33 single en suite rooms and 12 beds located in three, four-bedded bays.

The maternity unit has close links with the paediatric service for the provision of neonatal care and the anaesthetic team for provision of pain relief and management of women with serious pregnancy complications. The service also comprises a full community midwifery service.

There is a dedicated team who support new mothers with breastfeeding in and out of hospital.
