Work will shortly begin on the £300,000 upgrade of the Bracken Birthing Centre, funded entirely by the League of Friends to mark its 60th Anniversary Year.  The refurbished centre will include two brand new en-suite rooms including an additional birthing pool which, together with better lighting and temperature control, will provide a comfortable  modern birthing centre for Musgrove Park.

Philippa Quinn, ward sister of Bracken, said ” We want to extend a huge thank you for our League of Friends for the amazing Toad Trail fundraising campaign which proved a real hit over the summer.  Without the League’s support we wouldn’t have been able to achieve this upgrade.”

The upgrade is due to be completed by early summer.
