Parents and siblings of the baby can call or attend the unit at any time-although shift handover time is 0700-0730 and 1900-1930- and as this can be a busy time, there may be more opportunity out with those times to discuss your baby’s care/progress with staff.

Other visitors of the parents ‘choosing can visit between 1400-2000.Parents do not need to be present when family members/friends visit the unit, however from a security and confidentiality viewpoint; staff have to be informed of this as permission from parents is required otherwise access will be denied.

As space around cots/incubators is limited, and babies don’t like too much noise, we ask that only 2 visitors per cot space, please to allow staff access in case of an emergency. Anyone with a cough or cold is discouraged from visiting  special care as the babies in the unit have low immunity.
