You will have heard us talking our brand new £12m Maternity Unit at FGH. It is due to open in early February 2018 so we wanted to tell you a little bit more about what exactly the new unit is made up of.
It is very important that staff keep up to date with skills and knowledge – especially in conditions and situations that they might not experience regularly. The new unit has a dedicated skills lab which enables the full multi-disciplinary team involved in the care of women and families to learn and train together.
This skills lab will include a top of the range ‘Sim Mum’ which simulates labour and birth to enable staff to keep up to date with skills and knowledge needed in emergency and uncommon situations.
