Media Release: Rising birth rate prompts extra recruitment

A MINI baby boom in Lothian has led to the recruitment of extra staff in maternity services across the region’s hospitals.

Two additional consultants, together with a number of additional midwives, have joined the teams at NHS Lothian’s Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and St John’s Hospital in Livingston.

Dr David Farquharson, clinical director, Women’s Services, NHS Lothian, said: “In common with the rest of Scotland, we are seeing increases in the number of births at our hospitals.”
