Story

One of our specialist services is the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit which provides specialist care to sick term and pre-term (premature) newborn babies.

The state-of-the-art facility is located at the Princess Anne Hospital, Southampton. This has 37 baby cots, 23 intensive/high dependency cots and 14 special care cots.

It is one of the largest neonatal units in the country treating around 900 babies each year, from Southampton, Poole & Bournemouth, Chichester, Dorchester, Basingstoke, the Isle of Wight, Salisbury, Winchester and the Channel Islands.

Our babies have survived as young as 23 weeks, with some of them only weighing 460g/1lb.

Picture a baby smaller than the size of your hand. Imagine the skill needed to care for and treat something that size.

With your support, we can continue to help make a difference for our patients and their families at the time when they need it the most, from the patient comfort and support services through to investments in advancements in clinical research, treatments and equipment.

Money raised could go towards new equipment, more resources for families, improvements to parent facilities or additional staff training. All of which could help to improve our unit even further, ensuring babies and families receive the best care possible.

If you want to hold your own event to raise money for our youngest patients, get in touch with us and we can provide help, support and advice to you.
