Visitor Information

We value parent(s)/carer(s) as partners in the care of their infants and want you to feel fully involved in your baby’s care.

Parent(s)/carers and siblings have open access to their infant/s 24 hours a day. We particularly encourage parent(s)/carers to attend morning ward rounds to discuss the care of your baby in partnership with the NICU/SCBU team. The sensitive nature of the care we provide and the friendly spaces on our unit mean you may hear personal information regarding other families and their baby. We ask you to please respect the confidentiality of others.
