Choosing where to have your baby is a big decision, that’s why the RUH is looking at what we provide across our region and we’d like your help. Did you know we deliver over 4,800 babies a year across our freestanding Birth Centres in Chippenham, Trowbridge, Frome and Paulton, the Bath Birthing Centre at the Royal United Hospital in Bath, or in homes across the area? We’re currently looking at what we provide across our region to make sure we are getting it right for women, both now and in the future.
We’ll be talking with mums, families, staff, patients and anyone with an interest in these services to help us answer some key questions. We want to understand what matters most to those who use or work in our maternity services. What lies behind the decision on where to give birth? What do we do well at our Centres and what could we improve or introduce? Come along to one of our informal discussion groups: Tuesday 14th February 2017, 2–4.30pm Oasis Boardroom, RUH Bath, Combe Park BA1 3NG Monday 27th February 2017, 1-3.30pm Victoria Hall, Church Street, Radstock BA3 3QG Tuesday 7th March 2017, 1-3.30pm Assembly Hall, Market Place, Melksham SN12 6ES
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more or book a place. If you can’t make it to a session, we’d still like to hear from you, complete a questionnaire www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Maternitytogether to help us understand what matters to you, what’s good about the options we offer, what could be improved or introduced and what the best mix of choices could look like.
