Donate to Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Our neonatal intensive care unit

… has been specially designed as a bright, welcoming and spacious environment for babies and their families. As one of the largest neonatal units in the country, we treat around 900 babies a year, from across the south and the Channel Islands, specialising in surgery and cardiac services.

We have 23 intensive and high dependency cots and 14 special care cots. Each cot has monitoring equipment and is colour-coded to give each baby their own place.. It is the details which makes the difference for the family.

How Charity support has impacted the hospital

  • We fund vCreate so parents can get regular photo and video updates of their baby/babies if they cannot be on the unit with them.
  • A new and modernised ambulance will help deliver enhanced care for babies and children needing emergency treatment at Oxford and Southampton hospitals. This includes the Southampton Oxford Neonatal Transport (SONeT) service for babies and the Southampton Oxford Retrieval Team (SORT) for all infants and children (up to the age of 16).
  • We funded the refurbishment of the day room, parents rooms, plus the shower facilities on the unit.

Together we can make a difference.
