During a recent tour of the facilities as part of a birthing class, I was disappointed and surprised to see the state of the maternity ward. There are only two birthing suites, which would prove problematic if there were more than two births on a given day which is very possible. The rooms are old and there is only one single room. As a patient considering whether or not to use private health, I don't feel there is a great incentive to do so.
An overhaul and rethink of the space allocated to maternity is required to ensure the care and comfort of patients and to provide a workable environment for doctors and nurses on the maternity ward.
