Neonatal services

Our services

The Neonatal Services at the Rosie consist of a number of departments: the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) and the Community Team. All of these departments are interlinked and work together to provide the best possible care and treatment.

Information for patients

At the Rosie, as an active member of the regional network, it may be necessary to transfer a baby to another unit as part of their normal care pathway, thus providing optimal specialist care at all stages of the baby's stay. The Regional Transport Team (ANTS) will be responsible for the safe transfer of such babies.

Referral information

We receive referrals for the most critically ill neonatal babies in the region and if necessary, from outside of region. The neonatal unit is specially designed and equipped to care for the sickest and most vulnerable babies, taking referrals from all over the region and occasionally beyond. All expectant parents hope that their babies will be healthy. Yet sometimes problems arise that require a newborn to be admitted to the NICU for treatment. Being born prematurely, having a difficult delivery or antenatal concerns are all reasons a baby may be admitted to the NICU. It is always stressful when a baby is unexpectedly admitted to the NICU. The length of a baby’s stay on the NICU varies depending on each individual baby’s needs. We aim to support the family throughout their baby's stay and encourage parents to become involved in their baby's care. The doctors, nurses, and other caregivers in the unit will do their best to provide emotional support for you while caring for your infant's medical needs.
