Maternity unit gets 61K upgrade

A 61,000 upgrade of maternity facilities is due to take place at Chippenham Community Hospital in Wiltshire.

The work which is scheduled for 13 October will mean a total replacement of the floor throughout the unit.

Deliveries and ante-natal appointments will continue as normal while the work is carried out.

Mother who are due to have a caesarean section will be transferred to Trowbridge Maternity Unit.

"We realise that any change in arrangements during pregnancy can be worrying, so we have written to mothers individually to explain what we're doing," said Vicky Tinsley, Assistant Director of Midwifery for Wiltshire Community Health Services.
