Since our world changed a little over 12 months ago our priority has been to offer the very best care whilst ensuring the safety of all our women, babies, families and dedicated staff. It’s been a hugely challenging time and we know that the temporary visiting measures to limit number at our Women’s Hospital to curb any potential spread of COVID-19 have been difficult. We’ve truly appreciated everyone’s patience and understanding during this time.
