Maternity and Neonatal Services
There were 51 deliveries in the 2016/2017 financial year. Since 2011-12 births at this maternity unit have declined by 38.5%.

Salaried DMOs provide the hospital services. There are no specialist medical staff on site however a Specialist Obstetrician visits monthly.

Carnarvon is a Multi-Purpose Service, with a relatively small number of confinements. It has 2 labour and birth suites and 3 antenatal and postnatal beds.

It caters for low risk deliveries, with salaried DMOs providing obstetric services including caesarean section skills and the provision of anaesthetic services. The unit is well supported by these procedurally-skilled salaried medical officers and the midwifery team. It offers rapid access to emergency caesarean sections.
