The maternity and neonatal departments have outgrown their current space in the Princess Alexandra Maternity Wing at Royal Cornwall Hospital. In the fifty years since the units were built, birth rates in Cornwall have increased dramatically. We now deliver over 4,000 babies every year compared to the 2,500 babies delivered back in 1968 when the unit first opened.
We have received NHS funding to begin improvements, which will help us take a big step towards improving care for women giving birth and newborn babies who need to stay in hospital for specialist care. Funds raised through The Cornwall Birth and Baby Appeal will mean we can supplement the NHS investment and provide equipment that will enhance the maternity and neonatal areas to give parents and babies in Cornwall the very best start on their incredible journey.
