Antenatal Clinic refurbishment completed

11 August 2011

A major refurbishment of our Antenatal Clinic to improve the reception and patient waiting areas for women who choose to have their baby at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital has now been completed.

A major refurbishment of our Antenatal Clinic to improve the reception and patient waiting areas for women who choose to have their baby at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital has now been completed.

Construction work started in June and was completed on time. A follow-on project to replace flooring and redecorate the Obstetrics and Ultrasound Department at the rear of the Antenatal Clinic has already started and is due to be completed by 29 August.

Vivien Bell, Head of Midwifery, says: “The refurbishment of the Antenatal Clinic will result in an enhanced patient experience for pregnant women by improving the flow of patients through the clinic and also improving privacy.”

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital’s maternity services are increasingly popular with women:

  • 5,738 deliveries in Maternity in 2010/11—compared with 5,497 in 2009/10, 5,311 in 2008/09 and 5,177 in 2007/08
  • 95% of women said their care at Chelsea and Westminster was ‘Excellent’, ‘Very good’ or ‘Good’ in the Care Quality Commission’s latest national survey of women’s experiences of maternity services

We hope that the refurbishment of the Antenatal Clinic will improve further women’s experience of maternity services at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.
