Trowbridge birthing unit decision to be made this week

Story posted on

ADECISION about the closure of Trowbridge Hospital’s birthing unit is expected to be made this week.

If the proposal gets the go-ahead, Trowbridge’s midwifery unit will only provide pre- and post-natal services, forcing expectant Westbury mothers to travel further afield to give birth.

The decision will be made at a joint governing body meeting of Bath and North East Somerset (BaNES), Swindon and Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Groups this Thursday 16th January from 10am. 

In a change to the original venue, the meeting will now be held at the Roper Room at Dorothy House Hospice Care – Winsley, Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire, BA15 2LE. The meeting is open to the public.

Papers for the meeting are available from the Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group website: www.wiltshireccg.nhs.uk
