Professor Sabaratnam Arulkumaran, consultant and Head of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at St George’s, University of London, officially re-opened the delivery suite on 29 September following a major refurbishment.

The event celebrated both the changes that Maternity Service has undergone in the last year and Prof Arul’s knighthood which he was awarded in the Queen’s Birthday Honours earlier this year.

In the past 12 months, the Maternity Service has undergone a wide-ranging re-design and renewal to provide better facilities for mothers giving birth and for staff, and to improve the way the service operates.
