Mums-to-be to benefit from newly refurbished and improved facilities

The refurbished and improved obstetric theatre, anaesthetic room and recovery room, adjacent to the existing Labour Ward.

Following a successful Department of Health bid for £190,000 of funding, mums-to-be at Rotherham Hospital will benefit from newly refurbished and improved facilities before, during and after the birth of their babies.

Maternity teams at our Trust have been instrumental in the refurbishment of our maternity theatres. Improvements include the installation of a new air handling system to maintain a sterile environment within the obstetric theatre and anaesthetic room including the addition of a new recovery room adjacent to the existing Labour Ward.

The new designated recovery room provides a dedicated space for women to recuperate with their babies after having their elective caesarean section in Day Surgery’s theatres. This improves patient flow and the overall experience of women, before they go on to stay on the hospital’s postnatal ward.

The team has also added a triage area for the assessment of antenatal women who may come with health concerns or may think they are in labour.

Miss Radhika Gosakan, Deputy Director of Maternity Services, said: “Improving the theatre, recovery and triage areas will provide an overall better experience for women by reducing waiting times and unnecessary admissions to Labour Ward.

“We are always looking to improve the experience of women using our maternity services and their needs have helped us shape these changes.”
