Neonatal intensive care unit

Neonatal intensive care unit

We provide specialist care to sick term and preterm (premature) newborn babies. You can find us on D level in Princess Anne Hospital

Our state-of-the-art, purpose-built unit has been specially designed as a bright, welcoming and spacious environment for babies and their families. We have 23 intensive and high dependency cots and 14 special care cots. Each cot has monitoring equipment and is colour-coded to give each baby its own place in the world. Parent and carer facilities are available on the unit as well as within the hospital site.

As one of the largest neonatal units in the country, we treat around 900 babies a year, from across the south and the Channel Islands.

You can see a virtual tour of our unit here.

Holding Little Hands - our family support group

Our Facebook group, Holding Little Hands, provides a space for support, latest news and information sharing. The group is run by family liaison sisters from our unit.
