London Neonatal Transfer Service

London Neonatal Transfer Service | The Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel Road, Whitechapel E1 1BB | London

We have worked with the dynamic team at LNTS since 2012. They have the huge job of transferring babies across the capital (and beyond) because of cot shortages, babies needing an increased level of care than their hospital can offer or repatriation back to their local unit.  To date we have made some big purchases as they get very little in the way of fundraising from families so we often apply for Trust Grants to help. These include Ventilators for use in each of their Transport Ambulances, Monitors, Humidifiers, Vein Finders, Phototherapy units and more recently some Criticool Monitors

Number of babies transported per annum: 1500

Current Appeal:

The LNTS team have made an urgent request for x3 Isolette TI500 Transport  Incubators. They provide a warm, safe environment and quick access necessary for optimal neonate care while a baby is being transferred from the neonatal unit in an ambulance environment.
The Incubator can run on 120 or 240 VAC line voltage (50/60/400 Hz) or internal battery power, giving neonatal transport teams optimal flexibility during transport journeys. The current transport incubators the service have are all over their official 7 year lifespan (some 8-20 years), are failing. The worst one is at risk of not holding its heat because of the cracks in it and maintaining the small babies temperature is essential to their care.

LNTS are referred approx. 2,300 babies per annum and complete approx.1,800 of these babies.

1,800 ÷ 4 incubators = 450 babies per incubator
