The Neonatology Department provides inpatient and follow-up care for sick and premature (preterm) babies.
The Neonatal Unit at the L&D is one of the leading Neonatology Departments in the country and is one of only three Level 3 units in the East of England, providing specialist intensive care for the most premature and sick newborn babies. 1 in 7 babies born will need admission and support from the Neonatology Department after delivery.
We have three separate nurseries in the L&D Neonatology Department with 37 cots in total. 11 cots are in the Neonatal Intensive Care nursery, 8 cots are in the High Dependency nursery and 18 cots are in the special care nursery.
When a baby is admitted to the Neonatal Unit they will be allocated a ‘named consultant’ for the length of their stay and each day they will be allocated a named nurse to oversee their care.
Clinic days/times: Monday AM, Tuesday AM/PM, Wednesday AM/PM, Thursday AM/PM, Friday AM
