Maternity services are based at the Princess Anne Maternity Unit, Royal Bolton Hospital, and Ingleside Birth and Community Centre in Salford. Our midwives also work in the local community.
We aim to offer a friendly, supportive and safe service for women and their families. The Maternity Care Choices booklet provides an overview of the options available to you across Greater Manchester, so that you can decide where, when and how you wish to be cared for, and make the decisions that are right for you and your family.

The hospital is one of three regional centres of excellence for maternity, neonatal and children’s services and has had an investment of around £20 million made to improve and expand the care we provide. The team at Royal Bolton includes consultant obstetricians and midwives who specialise in a range of roles and operate both in the hospital’s antenatal and maternity units and in the wider community.
A midwife led birth suite, which has five rooms and includes a birthing pool, opened in July 2008. The central delivery suite has carefully designed delivery rooms alongside obstetric theatres and dedicated assessment beds.
Ingleside offers women with a low risk pregnancy a unique birthing experience in a setting surrounded by nature in the heart of the community. There are a range of facilities on offer including en-suite rooms, birth pools, TVs, a kitchen area and a range of birthing aids such as birth balls and birthing mats.
The maternity unit has won local and national awards for its innovative work with women from vulnerable and disadvantaged groups.
