Strike action is taking place in June. We'll contact you directly if you or your child's appointment is affected.

There are rail strikes planned for June, which may affect your journey to our hospital and community centres. If you or your child has an appointment booked, please do all you can to attend. Plan your journey ahead and allow extra time.


Knitted bonding squares and knitted octopuses

We are aware of some viral campaigns circulating on social media, asking for donations of knitted bonding squares or knitted octopuses for our Neonatal Unit.

We’ll let you know if we need more in future, but for now we have plenty. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time and effort to send us knitting, your kindness is really appreciated; however, as we have had over 10,000 knitted squares our cupboards are overflowing! 

If possible, please reply to any posts you see asking for these items by explaining they are no longer needed. Please also ask for the post to be removed. This would be really helpful.
