A CONSULTANT has hung up his stethoscope after delivering hundreds of babies at Warwick Hospital.
Robert Jackson, consultant obstetrician at South Warwickshire Foundation Trust (SWFT) has spent the last 25 years working in the maternity department.
He has seen a number of changes since he first started at the hospital in 1991, including new waiting areas, a living and dining space and a family bedroom for parents in the special care baby unit.
He said: “It has been a pleasure working for the trust. I have had the privilege of meeting lots of lovely families and working with fantastic colleagues. I am so pleased to have seen the maternity unit develop over the years.”
The consultant’s last delivery was Rory Hart, who was born in October.
Rory’s parents were delighted the consultant delivered their baby – as he also delivered their daughter Pheobe four years ago.
Chief executive Glen Burley said: “Mr Jackson will be sorely missed. He has been a key member of the obstetrics team and played a pivotal role in maternity services within south Warwickshire.”
