Hazel Ward is a ward at the Great Western Hospital if you require hospital care during your pregnancy, or if you need your labour to be induced. 

Private rooms

We can offer a private room with an adjoining bathroom for a fee.

These rooms are booked on a first come first served basis and are subject to availability. 

Please ask a member of staff for further information.


Patients will received meals during their stay on Hazel ward.

We cater for all medical, religious and dietary needs. Please speak to a member of staff who will be able to make arrangements for you.


During the induction of labour, one partner can stay overnight to support the mother.

Following the birth, one partner can stay overnight, this is to support the mother and baby and promote family bonding.

A recliner chair is provided for the partner overnight. We ask that partners do not sleep in the hospital bed, because of the weight limit and infection control risk.

Partners who stay overnight must remain fully clothed at all times.
