We can now offer the privacy of an amenity room
An amenity room is available to NHS patients who wish to pay for the privacy of a single ensuite room in our maternity ward, rather than sharing a bay with up to three other women. There are two sizes of amenity room - large and normal - and they can be booked when you arrive on the ward or in advance (subject to availability), However, occasionally your room may be required for a woman who, for clinical or other exceptional reasons, needs to be segregated from the main ward and cared for in a separate room. If this happens, we will relocate you to an alternative room or open ward area. Your "amenity bed" payment will be refunded. We may also relocate you from an amenity room to an open ward area if either you or your baby becomes unwell, as this enables our staff to keep you both under closer observation and ensure you receive appropriate care.
The cost of amenity rooms are as follows:
- Large amenity room – £180 per day. These rooms have ensuite facilities. We have two large amenity rooms
- Normal amenity room – £150 per day. These rooms have ensuite facilities. We have six normal amenity rooms.
*** Please note: payment is for the room only and does not constitute private midwifery care or private medical treatment. You will be cared for by the same medical staff as NHS patients.
An amenity room booking form can be completed on arrival at the maternity ward. The form will request your payment details. Rooms will be charged per each day’s use. Payment will be taken when you leave for the number of days the room has been used.
