Calderdale’s milk bank gives babies a lifeline in the borough and beyond

A recent article in the Halifax Courier showed that a milk bank at Calderdale Royal Hospital is helping provide mums and babies in the borough and beyond with a vital resource.

Reopening in Huddersfield in 1993 after the HIV scare, the operation was transferred over to Calderdale when the two hospital’s neonatal units merged in 2008.

The milk bank is one of 16 across the UK and is the most northerly in England, helping those in need not just in Calderdale but in Bradford, Leeds, Sheffield and surrounding areas. The milk is donated by mums and helps pre-term babies.
