The unit is the major component in the perinatal psychiatry service, which also involves a liaison psychiatry service to the North Staffordshire Maternity Hospital and an in-patient facility in an acute admission ward.
These concentrated efforts led to national recognition in 1992 when the unit was awarded the Hospital Doctor Team of the Year Award.
