Facilities at the Neonatal Unit

You are here: Home \ Patients & Visitors \ A - Z Services \ Neonatal Unit \ Facilities at the Neonatal Unit




We have 5 family rooms on the neonatal unit. These rooms are for parents to stay overnight on the neonatal unit. They are available for mums and dads. Priority for these rooms will be given to parents of the sickest babies, parents needing to room in with babies prior to discharge home and those parents who are the greatest distance from their home. Also we have camp beds available that you can sleep next to your baby.


Car Parking

Whilst your baby is on the neonatal unit you will be given a car parking pass. This means that you will be able to park in the pay and display car park without having to pay. This pass does not guarantee you a space though. Only one pass per family can be issued.


Every 2 weeks a fully qualified masseuse will offer parents a half hour neck/shoulder/back massage. Ask the nurse caring for your baby to arrange this for you.


Resident mothers can continue to get their meals from the postnatal ward dining room.
