Great Expectations Charity

What is Great Expectations?

Great expectations is a charity for our maternity and midwifery department and comes under the main umbrella of the Trust’s charitable fund, registered charity number 1056493.

All charitable monies received go toward enhancing the experience of our women and their families while they are in our care, whether it be more comfortable chairs for partners to rest in on the Labour Ward to simpler things such as bean bags, pezzi balls or birthing sofas. For us it is very important that women feel comfortable and safe with us in an environment that is welcoming, and following on from our current Labour Ward refurbishment we hope to enhance these rooms further with multi media systems, eg.TVs and music systems.
