What happens if my baby is born sick or premature?
You may also need to be transferred if your local unit is full, although we will try as far as possible to ensure that this doesn’t happen. You will be transferred either before your baby is born, or your baby will be transferred by a specialist team after they are born.
We have two specialise transport teams in the South West;
- Peninsula Neonatal Transport Service (PNTS): Based in Derriford Hospital in Plymouth and mainly covers the Southern part of the region.
- Neonatal Emergency Stabilisation Team (NEST): Based in St Michael's Hospital in Bristol and mainly covers the Northern part of the region.
