The Neonatal Unit has increased capacity for intensive and high dependency care and it is equipped with ceiling mounted pendants to free up the space around each baby - making it easier to deliver a high level of care safely and meeting national standards.

 

There is also an expanded transitional care unit for mothers and babies who need a lower level of intervention not requiring neonatal unit admission.

 

Better facilities are also available so that parents can stay close to their babies, including bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and a play area for young siblings to use during visits.

 

Consultant commitment to the Unit is provided by Dr M. Quinn, Dr V. Lewis, Dr A. Collinson, Dr D. Mabin and Dr N. Osborne.

 

The Bereavement rooms were furnished with the help of SANDS (The Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society) who kindly donated £500.

 

Women’s Health Counsellors are part of the team providing care in The Centre for Women’s Health.  We offer emotional support for parents with babies on the Neonatal Unit.

 

“The technology in the Neonatal Unit was particularly impressive and I really liked the human touch with the bird and fish murals so it made the area look less like a hospital and more like a nursery.”
Roger Smith, Governor of RD&E Foundation Trust
