The Board of Directors of Belfast Trust has agreed the business case for the use of the top three floors of the critical care building on The Royal Hospitals site. This proposes to locate post natal beds and outpatient services on the top three floors of the critical care building, the proposal also includes a new build which will house the remaining maternity services including delivery theatres, birthing rooms, antenatal services and neonatology. This new build will be linked to the main building by a bridge.

Belfast Trust welcomes the Minister’s support in ensuring the first phase of the new Women’s and Children’s hospitals could now be available earlier than we might originally have expected.
