Welcome to the Neonatal Unit with the Rosie Hospital. We provide care and specialist treatment for some of the sickest and most vulnerable babies in the region.
An introduction to neonatal unit
Our Neonatal unit includes the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, also known as NICU, High Dependency Unit, also known as HDU, a Special Care Unit, also known as SCBU and the Neonatal Outreach Team. All of these departments are interlinked and work together to provide the best possible care and treatment.
There are many reasons why a baby may be admitted to the Neonatal Unit. These include being born too early, too small, needing surgery, or needing extra care after being born.
The Neonatal staff looking after your baby will explain everything to you as soon as possible.
As parents, you are the most important people in your baby’s life, so we understand how important it is for us to keep you updated and involved throughout your baby’s stay.
We are happy for you to phone anytime of the day or night to ask about your baby. However, if possible, please try to avoid the nursing handover periods which are 7:45am-8: 15am, and 19:45pm-20:15pm.
