Royal Bournemouth Hospital, Bournemouth

July 23rd 2014

The current maternity unit at Royal Bournemouth Hospital is in the process of moving to a brand new Midwifery Led Unit across campus. In the meantime the existing Xtag infant protection system has been moved to a temporary location adjacent to the current ward.

This temporary move is aimed at reducing the downtime of the tagging system in the transition phase. Once the new area has been installed in the new MLU area this system can be decommissioned.

Installation of the new MLU area is due to begin late October/early November with completion expected before the end of November.
