The Neonatal Unit was refurbished in 2007.
The Neonatal Unit is now evolving into a Level 3 Intensive Care Unit which means that we can care for babies from 24 weeks. Babies may be transferred to us from other parts of the UK beyond the Wirral, Merseyside and Cheshire.
There is a Quiet Room on the Neonatal Unit where parents can spend time with their baby away from the ward. Here, mothers can express their milk and have private discussions with staff and family.
This room can also be used during the day by parents wishing to have private time alone or for breast feeding/bottle feeding. There is an emergency buzzer in the room and a telephone if you need assistance from a nurse or doctor.
Telephone are available at each bedside on the ward and a public telephone phone is available on the first floor. There is a direct parent phoneline to the Neonatal Unit so parents can speak to nursing staff directly. Please do not use your mobile phone in the hospital. If you need to use a phone urgently, a memebr of the nursing staff will direct you to the nearest available teelphone.
