PRINCESS Alexandra Hospital (PAH) has issued a statement regarding supply and access to gas and air.
Joanna Keable, interim director of midwifery and gynaecology, at The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust said:
“Following the temporary suspension of the use of gas and air across our Maternity Unit, we are pleased to update that we can now offer gas and air to women and pregnant people in nine of the birthing rooms on our Labour Ward and all of our Birth Centre as well. Our expectation is that we now have a sufficient gas and air supply available to meet demand at any time, including with the use of our mobile gas and air kits.
“Final work continues on the fitting of the remaining permanent extraction/gas and air kits in five rooms, it is estimated that this work will be fully completed by mid-May.
“Thank you to all of the women and families who use our services and to our maternity and medical team for your understanding and support.”
And, of course, thanks to the Estates Management team.
