NICU redevelopment

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is undergoing a major redevelopment as part of the hospital’s Transforming Critical Care project, supported by our charity CW+. When complete in 2021, our NICU will have a total of 42 cots split between intensive care, high dependency and special care nurseries.

As well as increasing the number of cots on our unit, our aim is to transform the environment and facilities for babies, their families and our staff. The unit was designed with input from parents who have experience of caring for their baby on the NICU. Examples of this include provision of a sink for younger siblings to wash their hands and the flexibility to make each cot space private when needed or open to allow parents to support one another.

This animation indicates how the unit will look when finished.

Phase 1 of the new unit is now open. This comprises two new intensive care nurseries and a new reception area with dedicated spaces for parents, siblings and staff. 

Phase 2 is due to open in Autumn 2020. 

The building of our new unit would not have been possible without the generous support of our donors, to whom we are very grateful.
