What do we do?

We provide specialist medical and nursing care for babies and their families.

Neonatal Intensive Care – This is the highest level of neonatal care. Babies needing intensive care often need support with their breathing or are very sick and need very close observation. Our unit can provide short term intensive care for up to 2 babies at any one time. Babies needing longer-term intensive care are transferred to a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in another hospital.

Neonatal High Dependency – This is the second highest level of care. Babies needing high dependency don’t require quite as much help with breathing as babies in Intensive Care and do not need to be observed quite as closely.

Special Care – This provides care for babies who are recovering after spending time in Intensive Care or the High Dependency Unit. Special Care also cares for babies who need support with feeding or treatment for common conditions e.g. infection or jaundice.

Transitional Care – This level of care includes babies who are not unwell but may be at risk of infection and need treatment with antibiotics and close observation. These babies will have most of their care on the post natal ward but will come to the Special Care Baby Unit for treatment and investigations only.
