We are undertaking essential plumbing works in our maternity department
This means that we have temporarily relocated some of our services while these works are carried out.
As part of these works Percy Phillips postnatal ward has moved to Quantock Ward. While the ward is temporarily relocated we will also be taking the opportunity to refurbish facilities for our patients.
Beds in Quantock Ward, for women who need to stay in hospital during pregnancy, and the Day Assessment Unit have now been temporarily relocated to the Cotswold Ward.
We apologise for any disruption or inconvenience during this time.
