Rotherham awarded funds for new Post Natal Ward

29 Jan 2013 13:31:11

In November 2012, the Government opened a £25 million fund to applications from local NHS Trusts and Foundation Trusts in order to improve and upgrade their maternity units. Judged by a panel that included representatives from the Royal College of Midwives and Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust is pleased to announce that its bid has been successful. 

The money awarded will be used to convert an existing Ward within Rotherham Hospital in order to provide improved and more personalised Post Natal accommodation. Specifically, the Ward will have en-suite accommodation within the bays and feature single rooms which will provide a more welcoming and nurturing environment for mums and partners. 

Karen Norton, Head of Midwifery at the Trust says: “The new Post Natal Ward will provide significant physical improvement in terms of the environment and patient experience for mothers and families of new born babies.  It will also enhance and contribute to the high quality maternity care services that we provide.  Experience of maternity services is not only from the care they receive but also the environment that care is provided in.”
