To help us celebrate the opening of our new birthing unit the hunt is on for the first babies born at East Surrey Hospital almost a quarter of a century ago.
The hospital’s maternity unit opened its doors on the Canada Avenue site in Redhill back in 1991 and if you had your baby here in 1991 or 1992 we would love to hear from you and meet your “baby”.
Maternity facilities have undergone a transformation in the last 25 year and this is shown in the new relaxing and homely birthing unit. Four en-suite rooms with birthing pools, soft lighting and walls covered in calming photos of woodlands and flowers are now on offer to our mums to be and their partners.
Michelle Cudjoe, Head of Midwifery, Divisional Chief Nurse said: ”These mums and their children are part of our history and it would be lovely to hear their experiences and meet the adults who once upon a time were our first arrivals.”
So if you’re reading this and you had your baby at East Surrey Hospital or were born here between those years please get in touch with us. You can E mail Tasha.firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Tasha on 01737 768511 ext 6199.
The money awarded to Surrey & Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust was part of a £25 million investment programme by the Department of Health in maternity facilities and was the largest amount given to a hospital in this area.
