Maternity appointments at DBTH (22 January)

Colleagues within the Trust are working hard to review our current visiting restrictions, with a view to allow partners to safely accompany mothers to their appointments within the hospital.

In order to make this possible, we are exploring the option of rapidly testing individuals for COVID-19. With this precaution in place, we will have the confidence to open our maternity services further, ensuring the appropriate safeguards are in place for both our patients and staff.

Thank you for your patience in this matter, and if we are able to take delivery of sufficient supplies of tests, we will communicate when we are able to invite partners back into our maternity services. Please keep checking our website as well as social media page.
