New provider for maternity services in High Weald area

November 12, 2015

As part of an on-going commitment to improving local maternity services, started under the Better Beginnings programme in 2013/14, High Weald Lewes Havens CCG, East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust & Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust (MTW) have agreed in principle that the management of the maternity services provided within the High Weald area, including Crowborough Birthing Centre, should move to MTW to help provide a more seamless maternity service for women in that area.  

This is a positive direction of travel for the service that responds to what local people told us during the Better Beginnings consultation and provides an opportunity to streamline the service provision. The details around this transfer still need to be finalised and agreed.
