On a tour of the Maternity and Neonatal units, the Princess Royal met a wide range of staff who contribute to the running of these vital services. She took time to meet new parents and their babies on the post-natal ward as well as meeting our tiniest patients and their parents on the neonatal unit.

Maternity Services received the prestigious Royal College of Midwives’ award for ‘Learning from When Things Go Wrong’, which told of the difficult, often emotional journey to rebuild the service and restore the confidence of staff, women and their families over the past two years. This included the opening of a new Midwifery Led Unit - a real platform for the future of midwifery and childbirth at the Trust.
