We are funding new cots for the maternity ward at Macclesfield District General Hospital, where at least 1,600 babies are born each year. Since every baby will need a cot to ensure sleep safety, the ward requires 26 to be available for postnatal women and their babies. In March 2020 the hospital suspended its inpatient maternity services because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The maternity department is now planning to reopen and is carrying out a review of its equipment. The existing cots are decades old, some are damaged, and may not comply with enhanced infection control regulations. Unfortunately, there is no NHS funding to replace them, so we have agreed to provide 12 new cots for the department.

“The new beds for parents have had such a positive impact on the wellbeing of our children knowing their parent or carer is close by. But also for the parent being able to sleep comfortably next to their child has made such a difference to how they have responded to staff during difficult times on the ward. The difference a good night’s sleep makes is priceless.”
