Neonatal

What we do

We specialise in caring for infants who are born prematurely as well as newborns with a variety of complex surgical problems.

We also work closely with the Harris Birthright Centre, whose antenatal diagnostic service detects conditions before babies are born, enabling them to be given appropriate treatment after birth and sometimes before.

The Neonatal Unit has many different specialists such as physiotherapists, dieticians and occupational health and speech therapists who all work with our team to provide the best multidisciplinary care for children while they are with us.

In addition, we provide follow-up care in outpatients to monitor the progress of many of the infants we have treated in the Neonatal Unit.

As well as providing high-quality treatment for infants, we also have a world-renowned research group on our unit which specialises in investigating neonatal respiratory illnesses.
