Views sought in Berwick over baby unit closure
Health bosses in Berwick say they're keen to hear the views of hundreds of local women about the future of the town's maternity unit.
Protests have been held in the town after the unit closed temporarily in August.
The local hospital trust said fewer births there meant midwives could not practice their skills regularly enough.
The next nearest unit is 40 miles away. An independent company is now carrying out research into what maternity services local women would like to see in Berwick.
