Barnstaple Special Care Unit

Barnstaple Special Care Unit

Our level one unit is part of the South West Neonatal Network. We have 8 cot spaces, 2 of which are high dependency spaces.

We can admit and care for babies 30 weeks gestation and above and twins from 32 weeks gestation and above.  If the baby is born before this gestation she/he would be transferred out to another unit in the region depending on the baby's condition.

Our aim as a multi-disciplinary team is to provide high-quality family-centred care, to meet the individual needs of each infant and his/her family.  We respect, encourage and support parents to participate in all aspects of care to enable their infant to reach optimal health and well being.  We recognise the need for parents and staff to work in partnership in care and through effective communication and mutual trust.
