From September 2016, there will be midwife led birth centres at Dewsbury, Pontefract and Pinderfields Hospitals. All births that need to be managed by a consultant will be at Pinderfields.
Routine ante-natal and post-natal care will still be offered locally in community clinics and at your local hospital.
Why is this better?
The changes to maternity services will
- Improve outcomes for all women and babies
- Allow us to provide more consultant cover in one place which means that access to highly specialist care is available for those who need it most.
- Improve the chances of survival and give the best results for very poorly and premature babies.
