The unit has received reports of a fox in the main maternity entrance area which should not be approached. The Trust has responded to this incident and has involved pest control however in the meantime we would advise all patients and staff to exercise caution when entering or exiting the unit late at night. Please do not feed the fox. Please report any incidents to ward staff."
