Sometimes babies are born in hospitals that do not have facilities to provide appropriate level of care. In these cases it may be necessary to transport them from one hospital to another. To enable babies to be transported as safely as possible, a dedicated neonatal transport service has been developed.
This team consists of a doctor or nurse practitioner and a nurse experienced in neonatal transport. The team can safely move babies who require higher levels of care when they need it.
We have our own neonatal transport ambulance, which enables us to move babies more efficiently and safely within Kent, Surrey, Sussex and beyond.
