Ward Information

Neonatal Unit-

Every parent hopes that their baby will be born healthy but for some families it will be necessary for their newborn to be admitted to the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) for stabilisation and care.

There are many different reasons why a baby might need to be admitted to the Special Care Baby Unit. Your baby may have been born earlier than expected, need help with their breathing, feeding, temperature control or weight gain and may need close observation and monitoring.

Some parents may be aware that their baby will require admission to the unit before their baby is born but for many families, their baby’s admission to SCBU is unexpected and can be very upsetting. Staff will explain the reason your baby has been admitted and will answer any questions you may have and ensure you are kept updated on your baby’s progress.

The unit is close to Labour Ward and Theatres to make transfer of babies requiring extra care, quick and easy. We have 10 cots including one for babies requiring intensive care, and one for babies needing high dependency care.

Our unit is staffed by doctors and nurses with specialist skills and experience in looking after premature and sick babies and is open 24 hours per day, 365 days a year.
