Our neonatal unit provides round the clock care to little ones who have been born prematurely or extremely poorly.
These families may be in the unit for just a few days, but some spend several weeks, even months with us.
Over the years, we have been overwhelmed with generous donations from families who have experienced the care of the neonatal unit and have gone on to raise funds.
What the neonatal fund provides
The James Cook Hospital Neonatal Charitable Fund helps us to provide treatment and care over and above what the NHS would routinely provide.
People’s generous donations really do make a huge difference to both staff and families, funding everything from creating a tranquil and relaxing outdoor space where people can take a break from the busy ward, to the latest medical or technical equipment.
Some of the things the fund has provided over the years include memory boxes and keepsakes for families of babies who have sadly passed away, as well as family rooms,
cooling mats and other equipment.
Funds also go towards improving our parents’ accommodation as well as for the further education of our staff.
