Who to talk to if you have any concerns

You can talk to anyone; we are all there to help. If you talk to the nurse who is caring for your baby on the day that you have concerns they will talk things through with you.

Talking to the medical team

Best time is during the ward round but we recognise that at times you may not be here for those times so always ask the nurses and they will be able to ask the doctors to come and update you.

Please remember though that at times they can be quite busy as they cover clinics and other areas in the hospital and they do have to attend emergencies.

Ward Rounds


Doctor's rounds are daily from 09.30. We would encourage you to be present on these ward rounds.
