Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU)

Updated 23 February 2021

We are a small, busy friendly unit located opposite the Maternity Unit in East Wing.

There are approximately 250 babies admitted to us each year. The babies we care for are either premature (from approximately 32 weeks onwards) or unwell. Only under exceptional circumstances do we admit babies who have already been home.

We understand what an emotional time this can be for parents and the rest of the family. We try very hard to support the family as much as possible. Parents can be reassured their baby will be well looked after and receive excellent care from us.

Parents of babies on SCBU are entitled to parking concessions.
