The central formula room prepares all formula and fortified breastmilk and delivers it to the ward formula fridges between 2pm and 3pm daily. All formula and fortified breastmilk must be used within 24 hours.
The central formula room is on level B2 (access via the green lifts).
Excess breastmilk and breastmilk requiring additives can be dropped off once a day, between 8.30am and 5.30pm.
Up to 2 litres of breastmilk can be frozen, so please take any extra home.
To store frozen breastmilk in the Central Formula Room, the milk must be frozen solid and have at least four months before it expires. Any partially defrosted breastmilk will be handled as per fresh breastmilk.
When it’s time to go home, collect unused breastmilk and/or tins of own formula from the central formula room.
