Maternity Day Assessment Unit

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.

Visiting the Maternity Day Assessment Unit

Open visiting on all wards is between 10am and 8pm, 7 days a week

Visiting outside these times can be discussed with the nurse or midwife in charge. See our Visiting Policy.
