Welcome to Ward 24 Delivery Suite

Ward 24, also known as the delivery suite, is on the first floor of the Women’s and Children’s centre in the Princess Royal Hospital.

The ward is where women with what may be deemed a “higher risk” pregnancy may come to give birth. These are normally patients who are under a consultant’s care for another issue.

The ward itself is made up of 13 en-suite delivery rooms, a pool room, 2 theatres and a recovery area. In total we have around 70 midwives and 18 support staff registered to work on the ward. Please see below for photographs of example rooms.

We encourage patients to have birthing partners on the ward. This can be two people of your choice, however only one will be allowed if there is a need to go into theatre.

Patient Comments

May 2017 – “I couldn’t thank all the staff on the delivery suite and maternity ward enough for delivering my gorgeous baby by c section. Every single member of staff were friendly, professional, put my mind at ease. They answered all of questions and helped me with breastfeeding on our overnight stay. An amazing hospital.”

October 2017 – “Can’t praise all the staff at maternity enough, who all went far and beyond their duty of care to ensure my daughter had a safe delivery. Thanks to the doctor who spotted complications and rectified them speedily with assistance from all the rest of staff. There are no words adequate enough to express my thanks for taking care of my daughter and the safe delivery of my beautiful granddaughter, x”

May 2017 – “The whole team that I came into contact with on the labour ward provided me with phenomenal care, respect, and empowerment and were so supportive, I truly cannot thank you all enough, you are without a doubt a credit to the Princess Royal Hospital.”
