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



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.


We have 5 family rooms on the neonatal unit. They are available for families. We also have a number of camp beds which can be used to enable you to stay with your baby.


Showers and toilet facilities –there are showers and toilets on the NNU


Resident mothers can continue to get their meals from the postnatal ward dining room. These can be collected by our assistants and eaten in the parents sitting room.

Breakfast is served between 7.30am and 11.00am.

You can choose from Traditional English Breakfast, Croissants, Kippers, Porridge or Variety of Cereals. Home-made Bakery Goods, such as Scones, Doughnuts, Chelsea Buns - all made daily.

There is also Fine Fillings sandwich/snack bar which is situated in the main entrance of the Centre for Women’s Health open from 8am to 5.30 pm. You can purchase pasties, sausage rolls and freshly baked pastries, sandwiches, baked potatoes & rolls filled with fillings you like.

Hot drinks and food are not to be taken into the HDU/ITU areas but you are able to eat and drink in the low dependency nurseries as we strive to create a more realistic/home based environment prior to discharge.


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.
