As a Trust, we welcome NHS England’s most recent report on maternity services and colleagues will look to action the various recommendations contained within, wherever this is possible given the current circumstances.
However, please note that until further notice and communication, our visiting policy within maternity services at Doncaster Royal Infirmary and Bassetlaw Hospital remains unchanged. If you are coming for an appointment, please read this guidance – if people attend without consulting this advice, they may be asked to leave.
Throughout the challenges presented by Covid-19, the safety of our babies, mothers, fathers and staff has been our top priority. Any potential changes to our current policy will take time to implement, with the necessary safeguarding assessments undertaken, as well as other considerations to ensure minimal risk to patients.
We thank you for your patience, and we will communicate any updates as soon as we can.
