Our care


There are 26 cots providing different 'levels of care' depending on the needs of the baby. These levels are termed intensive care, high dependency care, special care and transitional care.

Neonatal network


Our neonatal unit is part of a network called the South West Neonatal Network.

Around 60,000 babies are born across the South West region every year and approximately up to 30% may require care that is provided by the neonatal units across the region.

The South West Neonatal Network has a website which provides information which will help you understand how and where neonatal care is provided across the region and what it may mean for you and your baby to receive this care. We hope this information will help to minimise some of the stress and worry of having your baby in a neonatal unit.
