Single Room with En-Suite Bedroom Facilities in the Lancashire Women and Newborn Centre.
What is an amenity bed?
An amenity bed is available to NHS patients who wish to pay for the privacy of a single en-suite room during their stay in the Lancashire Women and Newborn Centre at East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust.
Can I pre-book an amenity bed?
When you are admitted in labour or admitted to the ante natal ward please ask your midwife to check availability. If you are coming in for a gynaecological procedure or operation you can request a amenity bed on notification of your admission date.
These rooms are booked on a first come first served basis and rooms are subject to availability, Rooms cannot be booked in advance During periods of high occupancy on the ward or due to clinical requirements, amenity beds may not be available. If you are occupying an amenity bed that is needed for a clinical reason by another woman, we will need to relocate you to an alternative room or in a ward area.
How much does it cost?
A charge of £130 per overnight stay (or £80 up to 12 hours) is payable for each night spent in an amenity bed. This provides you with a single en-suite room. Payment is for room only and does not constitute private midwifery or medical treatment /care.
How do I pay?
An amenity room booking form should be completed on the day of admission and day of discharge from the room. Rooms will be charged on a per overnight stay basis. When you leave to go home, payment will be calculated for the number of nights you occupied the room. Following your discharge an invoice will be forwarded to your home address, unfortunately, we do not deal with insurance companies direct.
Please Note: you will not be charged for the use of these rooms unless you have specifically requested one.
