Services provided by the department

Our team here is committed to provide the best possible support before, during and after labour and we are delighted that we have recently added ten new midwives to support the increasing numbers of women choosing to have their babies with us. As well as having the only full range of neonatal services in Surrey we have developed a midwife-led birth unit, the Abbey Birth Centre.
