Request:

  1. The dates (day, month , year) that The Central Delivery Suite from Royal Bolton Hospital temporarily closed their doors to new maternity patients from 1st April 2004 onwards (or the earliest date available, if this is later)
  2. The date (month, year) of the opening of The Midwife Led Birth Suite from Royal Bolton Hospital
  3. The dates (day, month , year) that The Midwife Led Birth Suite  temporarily closed their doors to new maternity patients from 1st April 2004 onwards (or the earliest date available, if this is later)
  4. Note that by temporary closure of the maternity units, I mean the dates (day, month, year) on which at least one woman in labour (or was scheduled to give birth on that day) was diverted to another hospital because of the capacity (through lack of beds or staff) of the unit had been reached (rather than her clinical need). By new patients, I mean women not already admitted to the maternity unit.
  5. Bank/agency spend on midwifery staff for each month from April 2010 onwards (or the earliest date available, if this is later).
