The maternity entrance has a barrier in place, which is operated by the security team, providing safe access to the unit for emergency vehicles, disabled patients/visitors and access for patients being collected and dropped-off.

Unit Security

Our department has electronic doors covered by CCTV, which you have to ask to be let in and out of. This is to protect the privacy and security of all patients, especially babies.

We kindly request that all visitors and patients respect that these are in place to protect you and ensure that doors are not left open or held open to allow visitors to follow you in.
