The Trust is excited to announce that a programme of building work to improve our maternity and gynaecology facilities at Stoke Mandeville Hospital will begin this summer.

To facilitate the improvements, our antenatal and gynaecology outpatient clinics will be temporarily relocated to a different part of the hospital.

The new facilities are designed to improve access to our services in a modern, purpose-built environment.

All those in our care who need to have their antenatal or gynaecology appointments relocated will be advised in advance of their appointment.

The Trust has taken appropriate measures to ensure a safe and high standard of care is maintained during the work to improve our facilities. To maintain safe social distancing the Trust will continue to request that patients arrive no more than 10 minutes before appointments to prevent overcrowding of waiting areas.

Tina Charlton, deputy chief nurse at Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust said: “We are tremendously excited to begin the work to transform and update our maternity unit at Stoke Mandeville Hospital. We pride ourselves on the high levels of safe and compassionate care provided by our teams and are pleased that we will be able to provide state-of-the-art facilities for those receiving care.”

Building work will begin this summer and continue until spring next year when we anticipate we will be able to open our new improved maternity and gynaecology outpatients department.

The improvements to maternity and gynaecology facilities are part of a programme of building work taking place at the Trust to ensure that our hospital buildings and facilities offer the best healthcare environments for our patients care and staff.
