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.

COVID-19 Maternity service guidance

Jessop Wing teams are taking all precautions possible to limit the spread of COVID-19. As a result we have put in place the following restrictions to safeguard our mums and babies as far as possible. This is in line with national maternity services.

• Only one birth partner is allowed either in labour or at an elective caesarean section. This person must be COVID-19 symptom free and not self-isolating

• After the birth of your baby your birth partner can visit you on the postnatal ward for 1 hour per day.

This has been a difficult decision but we have to do all we can to limit the spread of this virus and we would ask for your understanding during this unprecedented time.

Important information about antenatal appointments - COVID19

Important information about maternity appointments:

Please attend your routine antenatal care appointment at the Jessop Wing as planned if you are well.

To help limit the spread of Coronavirus please:

• Come to your antenatal appointment alone (to allow for better social distancing we are not permitting visitors, other than one person in labour who must be well)

• If you have a fever or new persistent cough or are in self-isolation due to a family member being symptomatic of Covid-19 please contact us before coming to your antenatal appointment on 0114 2268091

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
