Maternity services guidelines
After initially allowing a single one partner/ support person to attend the obstetric ultrasound scan at 12 and 20 weeks, the decision has now been made to welcome partners back into the booking, additional scan appointments and antenatal clinics.
Guidelines remain in place for those coming in to the hospitals to ensure the safety of patients and staff, including following social distancing measures, wearing a face mask and regular hand washing.
Partners coming into the maternity departments will be asked to wait outside the department or in their car, before being invited in as the appointment will commence. This is due to limited waiting room capacities.
