Postnatal ward returns to refreshed Percy Phillips facilities

Friday, 27 October 2017

New mums can now benefit from refreshed facilities in our Percy Phillips postnatal ward.
The Southmead Hospital ward was temporarily relocated in July to enable essential plumbing works to be carried out.
And now mums and midwives have moved back into the ward today (Friday, October 27).

During the ward’s closure we took the opportunity to redecorate and improve the facilities for women and their babies staying in hospital after birth.
Ward Manager, Nicola Chinnock, said: “It is great that we have now moved back onto the ward and can welcome mums, babies and their families to our improved Percy Phillips facilities. We are so pleased that we have been able to take this opportunity to make surroundings better for the people we care for and are thrilled by how much lighter and brighter it feels.
“We thank everyone for bearing with us while we have been in our temporary home down on Quantock Ward, and all our staff for their hard work over this time.”
Quantock Ward – for women who need to stay in hospital during pregnancy - and the Day Assessment Unit are due to relocate from its temporary home on Cotswold Ward over the weekend.
