Peterborough: Extra Maternity Nurses
Extra maternity nurses are being recruited at Peterborough City Hospital, due to a record number of babies being born there.
Figures from the Peterborough and Stamford NHS Hospitals Foundation Trust show 4,834 babies were born at Peterborough City Hospital in 2012.
That's compared to the 3,486 births back in 2005.
The hospital now expects the number of babies born there within a year to surpass 5,000 in 2013.
As a result, extra maternity nurses and specialist staff are being taken on.
A spokesman for Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said: "It is possible that this coming year will be the first time that we have had 5,000 births at the hospital.
Due to the rising demand on the service, we are increasing our staffing levels in our Maternity Unit to ensure all of the women and babies continue to receive the safest possible care.
Three additional obstetricians and gynaecologists are being recruited and we are also increasing the midwifery staffing levels.
Detailed business cases and plans for the maternity unit have also been submitted to the Trust Board for consideration.
The midwifery staff have already been recruited and will be starting at various points throughout the year."
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Fire Authority are asking residents if they'd support a rise of 1.9% to its proportion of council tax for 2017/18.
