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
