Other useful information

Car parking

Pay and display parking is available please bring change with you to pay on exit.

Smoking

Smoking is not permitted in the hospital or hospital grounds. Pregnancy is often a time when people consider giving up smoking both for their own health and that of the baby. If you smoke and would like to give up please ask your midwife for information on stopping smoking.

Telephone

Hospedia is available at every bedside and cards can be purchased from the Hospedia machines. For further information please click here.

Enquiries

The midwives will deal with any telephone enquiries about you whilst you are on the ward, but please remember they cannot give out any information about you to callers. Therefore it is helpful if you or your partner can pass on all information to relatives and friends in order to keep the phone lines as clear as possible in case of emergencies.

Security

To provide you with extra security and peace of mind when you have had your baby we have a cot mattress / parent controlled system. This will be demonstrated to you once your baby is born.

Car seats

By law and in the interests of safety, any child should be restrained while travelling by car. It is therefore important that you provide a car seat for the baby's journey home from the hospital. It is essential that you heed the advice given by the manufacturer and adhere to regulations for the safety of your baby.
