Hospital’s £190k boost to improve maternity care

Have your say

Rotherham Hospital has been handed more than £190,000 to improve facilities for pregnant women and new mums.

The hospital’s maternity unit has been given £191,110, which will be used to provide more specialised areas for Caesareans, and offer extra support for post-natal care and breastfeeding.

The cash came from the Department of Health.

Head of midwifery Audra Muxlow said: “Maternity services here are already excellent, however we constantly seek to become even better.

“We will use feedback from patients and their relatives to make the enhancements and are very excited and grateful for this support.”

The improvements will be finished by the end of this year.
