Changes to our maternity unit entrance

From Monday 10 August, the main entrance and reception area for the maternity unit at Musgrove Park will be closed from 8am-5pm each day for refurbishment works.

During these hours:

  • For Labour ward please use the Fern ward entrance, round the far left of the unit by SNICU and Tops Nursery
  • For Willow ward and Triage please use the entrance round the far right of the unit, towards the main hospital building
  • For the antenatal clinic please use the entrance directly to your left at the main entrance
  • For drive-in COVID-19 swabbing please park outside the main entrance, call the Triage number (01823 343985) and wait in your car.

The refurbishment works are part of a wider project to upgrade the maternity unit, improving the patient experience of our mothers and their families. The works are set to improve the reception area, as well as creating two new recovery rooms and an additional ultrasound scanning facility in our antenatal clinic.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we complete this project – we can’t wait to share our new facilities with you once they are completed!
