Hazel Ward is an antenatal and postnatal ward caring for you if you require hospital care during your pregnancy, or if you need your labour to be induced. 


Great Western Hospital - second floor (please see Floor plan).

Amenity rooms

We offer the opportunity to request a single side room with en-suite bathroom. Rooms are subject to availability and a fee is required. Please ask a member of staff for information about booking a room.


Patients will received meals during their stay on Hazel ward.

We can cater for your medical, ethnic, or other dietary requirements. Please speak to a member of staff who will be able to make arrangements for you.


During the induction of labour process, one partner is permitted to stay overnight to support the mother.

Following the birth, one partner is permitted to stay overnight, this is for the purpose of supporting the mother and baby and to promote family bonding.

A recliner chair is provided for the partner overnight and we respectfully request you do not sleep in the bed with your partner, because of the weight limit of the beds and infection control risk.

We would like to remind all partners who stay overnight that they must remain fully clothed at all times.
