We want to make sure that all babies born in north east London have the best possible start in life and their parents experience the best possible pregnancy and birth.
North east London hosts the largest maternity trust in England, Barts Health, with three hospitals providing maternity services - Royal London Hospital, Newham University Hospital and Whipps Cross Hospital. Queen’s Hospital in Romford, run by Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (BHRUT), is one of the largest single site maternity providers in England. In 2018/2019 over 28,000 babies were born in north east London.
We continue to involve women and their families to help us shape a maternity service that is safe, high quality and accessible to them.
