Care for sick and premature babies
30 July 2018
NHS England is reviewing how sick and premature babies get the right care for their needs and want to ensure they have heard the views of parents who have used neonatal services in the past and from women who are pregnant who may need to use the service.
Around 1,000 babies are born on the Isle of Wight every year. Most will be healthy but a small number will need extra care in hospital. Special care for ill or premature babies is known as neonatal services. The neonatal unit at St. Mary’s cares for around 98 babies each year. Some babies with extra care needs will be cared for on the mainland in a bigger hospital with a specialist service.
Your midwife can explain the proposals in more detail and you can also meet with NHS England at the Antenatal Clinic at St. Mary’s Hospital from 9am tomorrow, 31st July, if you have further questions you wish to ask.
There are a number of ways that you can get involved to have your say:
  • Email: ENGLAND.WessexCommunicationsTeam@nhs.net
  • Write to: Neonatal Review, NHS England, Oakley Road, Southampton, SO16 4GX
