The Special Care Baby Unit Appeal will enable doctors and nurses to save and improve the lives of the sickest, most vulnerable newborn babies.
The appeal will provide specialist equipment such as ventilators and the latest incubators so that the condition of newborn babies with
urgent medical needs can be treated more effectively. It will enable the Special Care Baby Unit team to continue their fantastic care and enhance their capabilities.
Premature babies are underdeveloped and have to be given extra help for their tiny bodies to cope with the outside world. The ventilators will aid the babies to breathe and fully develop in their new environment.
The unit has 8 cot spaces, 2 of which are high dependency spaces. We can admit and care for babies 30 weeks gestation and above and for twins from 32 weeks gestation.
With your support we will be able to help many premature babies born in North Devon every year.
