Trust launches evening Antenatal clinic trial

Trust launches evening Antenatal clinic trial
16 October 2017

Burton Hospitals is offering an evening midwife led antenatal clinic as part of a three-month trial. The clinic will be for routine appointments and booking appointments for women who would normally receive their antenatal care appointments with the Community Midwife in the day at venues within the community.

The evening clinic has been designed to take the busy lifestyles of expecting mothers into consideration and to help put the mothers at ease when visiting for appointments without the worry of taking time off to attend appointments. The clinic will also give mothers the choice and more flexibility to book appointments at times that best suit them and their partners.

The structure of the appointments will consist of a clinic which will run from 5.30pm till 7.30pm. The clinics will be held at the Midwife Led Unit at Samuel Johnson Community Hospital in Lichfield and in the Antenatal Clinic at Queen's Hospital in Burton. There will be one clinic at each site per week.

Jo Marshall, Senior Midwife said “We are very excited to be a position offer this great trial service to expectant mothers in the community. The flexibility will allow for more time for mothers to raise any queries that they might have and overall, mothers will feel more relaxed when they come into appointments.”

This trial service is only available for women who have a community midwife employed by Burton Hospitals. If you are eligible and would like to book an appointment for the antenatal clinic, please book your appointment via 01283 511511 ext 4351.
