Royal Hampshire, Winchester
We started to work with the team at Winchester in 2015 and although it is a relatively small unit we have had some great support from the staff and families. We have donated equipment ranging from vapotherms to breast pumps and phototherapy lights to reclining chairs for kangaroo care cuddles.
We are delighted to be working with the wonderful & dedicated Neonatal team at Winchester hospital and would encourage anyone interested in raising funds through us for this neonatal unit to get in touch and discuss how you can get involved - the feeling of having made a tangible difference is simply incredible and very rewarding!
The team have requested a BiliCocoon® Nest system - adapted for preterm babies with jaundice. It consists of a large pad allowing wrapping and is adapted for kangaroo care and incubator. The Nest system allows easy access to the newborn.
The progress of the Appeal is shown below and a photo of the equipment can be seen on the right.
