Who are we?
Our team is made up of the following:
Medical Staff – Our medical team includes Consultants, Specialist Registrars and Junior Doctors. All babies admitted to the unit will be under the care of a Consultant Paediatrician. The Specialist Registrar and Junior Doctors are in training under the supervision of a Consultant. The medical staff will see your baby every day and are available for you to discuss your baby’s progress.
Nursing Staff – All our nurses are Registered nurses and some have undertaken additional specialist training in the care of new-born babies.
Nursery Nurses - The unit has a small team of nursery nurses who support parents preparing to take their baby home.
