Video To Promote Maternity Services

Health bosses in West Kent make video to promote changes to maternity services in the area

The film made by NHS West Kent and Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust has been made to talk about planned changes to maternity services in the area.

Health bosses want to move the majority of services from Maidstone Hospital to the new Pembury Hospital, something that has angered locals.  A protest against the plans was recently handed into Downing Street.

The video features local women talking about their experiences and hopes for childbirth.

Campaigners say it's too far for women to have to travel, especially in the case of an emergency.  This video was produced by campaigner Peter Carroll.
