MATERNITY services at Warwick Hospital have been boosted by a grant of almost £200,000.
South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust, which runs the hospital, has taken its share of a £25 million government fund to improve and upgrade maternity units across the country.
The cash, totalling £194,543, will be spent on enhancing to reception area and triage facility, creating a dedicated bereavement suite and improving overnight accommodation for parents in a new self-contained apartment.
Heady of midwifery Wendy Jones, who was involved with the funding bid, said: “We are thrilled. We are always looking at ways to improve our services for patients and this funding can help us tackle some of our bigger improvement plans.”
Trust chief executive Glen Burley added: “For the third year running the number of births at Warwick Hospital has increased and we are aware that more women from the surrounding areas are choosing to give birth here, therefore these developments are part of a plan to expand the department to ensure that we are able to offer a high quality environment for the future.”
