Private room launched for new mothers

RS140564_8314-scrRoyal Surrey County Hospital welcomes more than 3,000 babies every year and is now able to offer new parents their own private space to enjoy their new arrival.

The Trust has launched the Shere Suite, a luxury en-suite room for new mothers, where they can relax with their partner and new baby in a quiet and comfortable environment.

Occupants of the room will receive the same care as an NHS patient with access to our high standards of midwifery, neonatal and obstetric care.

The private suite is furnished to high standards and is equipped with a bedside cot, en-suite bathroom, fridge and comfortable fold away bed for partners.

For new parents comfort towelling slippers are provided and a gift set of natural pampering products in a keepsake box is for the new mother. There is also a Royal Surrey teddy bear for the new arrival.

The room is also stocked with refreshments and each day residents will be offered their choice of meal from the standard NHS menu.

RS140552_8277-scrIn addition to the NHS package of care they will also receive:

  • A one to one antenatal education class with one of our specialist midwives
  • A tour of the maternity unit and its facilities for you and your family at a time of your choice
  • A feeding consultation during your stay in hospital with either our specialist midwife or a specialist support worker
  • An opportunity to review your birth experience with a maternity matron or senior midwife
  • Open visiting for your family between 08.30am and 22:00pm.

Jacqui Tingle, Head of Midwifery, said: “Pre-planning a post-natal stay offers peace of mind for any expectant parent that they will have a quiet and comfortable environment to enjoy the first few days of bonding with their new arrival.

“Royal Surrey County Hospital is delighted to be able to offer a private room that is now open for advanced reservation.RS140556_8287-scr

“Residents of the Shere Suite can be assured that they will still receive the same high standards of NHS care, while enjoying the privacy of their own luxury en-suite room.”

The Shere Suite can be booked in advance for between one and five nights for £450 per night.

Short notice bookings are available if the room is not in use for £395.
