Abstract:
This report outlines the main activities of the hospital during a year which saw the continuation of the sustained increase in activity in recent years. The number of mothers delivered was 7,817, an increase of 3.4% over 1997 and 25% since 1994. The hospital's budgetary performance during 1998 is set out in detail in the Report of the Finance & General Purposes Committee. The deficit carried into the year was £212K and this increased to £661K primarily due to the need to increase the number of midwives to cope with the continuing increase in activity. The extent of this deficit is a cause for concern as it will be a "first charge" against the hospital's allocation in 1999. During the year the hospital commissioned a Development Control Plan (DCP). This DCP sets out a plan in terms of the infrastructure which will be needed to cope with increasing activity levels, changes in medical practice and enhanced patient expectations. This must be a priority for the hospital in the coming years. 1998 was a very challenging and stressful year for the hospital reflecting the sustained pressure on limited resources in terms of overworked staff and overused hospital facilities. These pressures were intensified by the ever higher standards of patient care that are now demanded by all who attend the hospital. Not wishing to single out individuals for fear of seeming not to recognise the efforts of everybody in the entire organisation,
