The maternity unit at Warwick Hospital has received a cash boost of £200,000 to help make improvements, some of which were suggested by patients.
Funding from the Department of Health was given to the Trust after a proposal was put forward to improve accommodation for parents and better facilities for bereaving families.
We are thrilled to receive just under £200,000 to improve services on our unit. We are always looking at ways to improve our services for patients and this funding can help us tackle some of our bigger improvement plans.
I am particularly pleased that we are able to improve our facilities for parents. When a baby is being cared for in the special care baby unit it can be a very distressing time and enabling parents to stay close to their baby provides some comfort. Our new bereavement facilities will be in a separate private area where parents can receive our support and care.
