The Maternity Day Assessment Unit is where we look after women who are experiencing complications with their pregnancy, but who don’t need to stay in hospital.
We offer rapid assessment and monitoring for women with conditions such as hypertension, bleeding, reduced movements, anaemia or ruptured membranes. We also look after women who have experienced previous pregnancy loss. Patients are referred to us by their GP or another healthcare professional.
