The Family Care Team is based on NICU. Our role is to support the whole family throughout your time with us. We are a Bliss Baby Charter accredited unit.

We are here to offer advice, answer any queries or help to resolve any concerns you may have.

If you feel you would like some additional support then we can also offer individual sessions on a one to one basis.

The infant feeding leads continue to work towards BFI accreditation. Alongside this they have started a quality improvement project, ‘First Drops’ to support early expressing of breast milk to ensure that every baby receives colostrum within 6 hours of birth. They have developed a parent information booklet which provides support to families from admission, through their journey in the NICU and following discharge. To enable staff to support each family there is a booklet with tools to guide, teach and empower parents.
