Patients & Visitors

Dyson Centre for Neonatal Care (NICU)



The neonatal unit provides care for premature and sick term newborn babies.  Approximately 10% of all babies will need admission to a neonatal unit, commonly because of prematurity, infection, breathing difficulties or feeding problems.

The unit works as part of a wider network, with the main intensive care being delivered in Bristol if your baby is extremely preterm or needing surgery, along with some sick term babies requiring further intervention. Once these babies are stable they will complete their care in this local neonatal unit.

The unit has 21 cots, and we have facilities for parents including 4 double en suite bedrooms, a breast milk expressing room, a parents coffee room, quiet room, a play area for siblings and a garden.
