Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)
The Level 2 Neonatal Unit (NICU) cares for inborn babies, in-utero and ex-utero transfers, and is part of the North Central London Perinatal Network. There is joint perinatal working in clinical areas with obstetricians and midwives and shared research projects both within the network and nationally. Deliveries are increasing, currently nearly 4000 annually with approximately 400 admissions to the NICU.
The NICUís capacity has recently been expanded to a 28-cot facility, including six intensive care, six high dependency and 16 special care cots. These include five mother and baby rooms, allowing for transitional care for well mothers and their growing pre-term infants.
Neonatal outpatient services incorporate antenatal counselling jointly with obstetricians; neonatal follow up, both general and developmental, and neonatal new patient referrals.
The unit has recently raised £600,000 for improvement works, as part of the 'Building for Babies' appeal (please click on the link for a PDF summary of the appeal).
