Jessop Wing

The Jessop Wing opened in 2001 and is a purpose built maternity unit where approximately 7,000 babies are born every year.

In addition to a 22 bed labour ward, there are three postnatal wards and one antenatal ward, an admission Triage area and a High Dependency Unit. One of the postnatal wards specialises in caring for women who have had a caesarean section. In addition the Jessop Wing Community Midwifery Service attend approximately 200 homebirths per year.

The Jessop Wing also provides neonatal intensive care and special care for sick and premature babies born in Sheffield and those transferred from other units who require this expertise.

On the ground floor of the Jessop Wing is the Antenatal Clinic and Gynaecology Outpatient Clinic. The Gynaecology Service also includes two wards on G Floor of the Royal Hallamshire Hospital.

The Jessop Wing also has an Assisted Conception Unit for women who require this specialist treatment.

The Jessop Wing has disabled access and there are facilities for the disabled.

Staying safe online

It has come to our attention recently that a fake Facebook account (calling itself a variation on Nhs Sheffield) has been set up in an attempt to engage with patients who use our services at Jessop Wing pretending to be a member of staff.

This account has been reported to Facebook and the relevant authorities have also been informed.

Our staff do not contact patients through Facebook and make requests for them to send personal details or information. We will never use Facebook or similar platforms to contact you as a patient.

Our official Trust Facebook presence is a page which can be found here

Notification of Research

The following research project is being carried out with the neonatal unit at the Jessop Wing:

“Early identification of necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) in preterm infants: Are pre-diagnosis changes in systemic clinical observations associated with disease severity?”

Necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) is an illness that affects the gastrointestinal tract (gut) of premature infants, and often results in damage and decay of sections of the gut wall. Our project will focus on infants that have been diagnosed with NEC, to try and determine if changes in heart rate and breathing in the days before diagnosis could have indicated the severity of the infection.

The project is being conducted by researchers at the University of Sheffield and the hospital research team. It will be running from June to September 2017. Patient records of infants admitted to the neonatal unit with a diagnosis of NEC, between January 2014 and January 2017 will be included. Anonymised relevant clinical information such as heart rate and breathing rate will be recorded by the researcher for analysis purposes. All publications arising from this research will be fully anonymised and no individual infants will be identifiable in any of the reports.

If you have any questions about the project or would prefer for your child’s information to be excluded from the research, please contact either Megan Greasley on or contact the hospital research office at the following address:
