The current neonatal intensive care unit at East Surrey Hospital is restricted in its capacity, which has an impact on the number of babies we can care for at any one time, and the comfort of the families under the care of the unit.

Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust (SASH) is investing to transform this.

The Trust is moving a number of services into a brand new building, and completely rebuilding and expanding the neonatal unit in the hospital.

This will create a modern space with significantly enhanced facilities. The new unit will have more space around each baby’s intensive care cot, additional capacity so more families can be cared for here, as well as new, modern family rooms for families to use, away from the bedside.

This is good news for local babies and parents, but we want to do more.

Help us go even further

Alongside this fantastic new facility, we want to help the clinical teams go further for families.

Your support will provide an enhanced level of equipment for the unit, beyond what would be expected in a local hospital, alongside improved facilities for families to spend comfortable time away from the clinical environment.

We can only do this with your help.
