May 2018: We are delighted that after our recent CQC inspection, our Maternity Service was rated as OUTSTANDING and the hospital received GOOD overall!

Our staff were described as an energetic and ambitious workforce who took accountability and ownership for changes within the department. It was also noted that staff were responsive to patients’ requests, with adjustments being made where possible to allow patients with specific individual needs to access care.

Jacqui Tingle, our Head of Midwifery told us “The staff who work in maternity are extremely proud of the outstanding accreditation from the CQC. The teams work really hard every day putting women at the centre of their care. We have achieved a lot in the last year being responsive to the needs of women and their families and are delighted that this was recognised by the CQC inspection team”

July 2018: After rigourous assessment we have been awarded The Unicef Baby Friendly GOLD Award!

The Royal Surrey Maternity Department is one of only four organisations in the county to be awarded the UNICEF’s Baby Friendly Gold Award. We have maintained our Baby Friendly accreditation for twenty years but this new award recognises that the Baby Friendly Standards, and the high quality care they represent, are embedding within the departments culture and values.

Face to Face Tours of the Maternity Unit  

As we have been getting busier looking after you and your families, we have taken the decision to change how we offer face to face tours of our maternity services.

From 1st December onwards all tours of the maternity unit will take place monthly after the ‘Your Pregnancy Matters’ event (some antenatal classes also include a tour). You can come for the talk 19.00-20.00 or just for the tour at 20.00. Midwives will be on hand from 18.30 to answer any questions you may have.

We believe that every pregnancy matters and with this in mind we would like to invite you to our ‘Your Pregnancy Matters’ event at The Royal Surrey County Hospital. They are run once a month on the following dates:

5th July 2018

13th September 2018

11th October 2018

8th November 2018

13th December 2018

During this event you will hear what services we provide during the antenatal period including: antenatal classes, mental health support and community care. We will discuss what options are available for your birth and you will hear about Home birth, birth in our Midwife Led Unit and using our Delivery Suite. Midwives will also be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

A tour of the maternity is included and you will get to meet other local parents whose babies are due around the same time as yours as well!

The event is free.

Please RSVP to rsc-tr.antenatalclasses@nhs.net or call 01483 406725 to reserve your space.

We suggest you attend between 12 and 18 weeks, however, you are welcome to attend at any gestation!
