The unit is supported by two Neonatal Managers, who can be contacted on telephone 01892 634660/634911


Your baby will be allocated a trained neonatal nurse every shift and they will introduce themselves. Their name will be written on the white board situated outside the special care nursery. The neonatal nurses are supported by nursery nurses who may also be allocated to care for your baby, but who work under the guidance of a trained nurse.

The Neonatal unit also has an Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioner (ANNP) who works alongside the doctors in our unit.

The Neonatal unit also supports and clinically supervises student midwives and child branch student nurses during their training.


We have fifteen paediatric consultants and one of them will be allocated to the ward on a weekly basis. The lead neonatal consultants are Dr Hamudi Kisat and Dr Rajesh Gupta.


There will also be a paediatric registrar and senior house officer allocated to the ward every day.
