- About the Team
The Ward 2E team consists of a dedicated group of midwives, obstetrician’s, paediatricians, anaesthetists; midwifery supports workers, health care assistants, a house keeper and admin staff. As we are a teaching hospital we also have student midwives, student doctors and student paramedics who attend.
The midwives along with the support staff will care for you whilst you are on the ward and will ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible. Women will be reviewed by obstetricians as required and our paediatricians will be on hand to perform any checks babies need during their time with us.
All babies are required to have a new-born check within 72 hours of being born; this is performed by a team of paediatricians and midwives who will ensure this is performed prior to discharge home.
Ward 2E is located on level 2, purple floor, Whiston Hospital.
At present one partner can accompany women who are having an induction of labour from 9am-9pm. (no overnight stays)
