Party time

Up to 400 very special children and their parents are having a party with staff from the assisted conception unit at Calderdale Royal Hospital. The annual get-together is being held in Halifax.

The unique camaraderie between our staff and patients means this event is always very popular. We are very proud of our reputation and the fact parents continue to come to us to help them become families and it is always a pleasure for us to see them again. We now have such a wide range specialist knowledge in all areas which puts patients at ease and reduces stress when they are going through difficult times. This party is a celebration for them and us and a highlight of our year.”
