Work begins on Musgrove Park’s Labour ward refurbishment

Our new look maternity unit has moved a step closer as work began last week on creating additional space for women after they have given birth.

Two additional rooms are being created – to provide an additional three beds – two recovery rooms and one room for women who need higher levels of immediate postnatal care.

The work is likely to take up to three months and may mean there will be some additional noise in the area.

Alongside the Labour ward work, our redevelopment of the Bracken Birthing Centre is now in the final stages and is likely to be ready to reopen in early June.
