Liverpool Neonatal Partnership

The Liverpool Women’s in partnership with Alder Hey are creating a specialist Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

Under the Liverpool Neonatal Partnership, specialist neonatal staff from both Liverpool Women’s and Alder Hey Hospitals are working together to change and improve how neonatal services are delivered to families across the North West and provide the highest level of care for the most vulnerable babies in the region. This includes reducing the number of transfers of neonates between hospitals by 50%.

The new Unit is being built on the Alder Hey site and will be the first of its kind in the country to provide Fi Care (Family Integrated Care) and will provide a safer service for babies within the Liverpool Neonatal Partnership

Liverpool Women's Jen Deeney, Head of Nursing for the Liverpool Neonatal Partnership said: “Keeping babies and their families together is so important for the early stages of a child’s development. Creating a specialist NICU on the Alder Hey site with family integrated care will ensure that new babies needing surgery can remain in one place with their parent or family members. The new Unit will also mean that our most vulnerable babies aren’t coming back and forth between hospitals for treatment.”
