Special delivery for neonatal unit

DSC 1384 - CopyTINY patients at Milton Keynes Hospital had a special delivery this month – funded by the Milton Keynes Hospital Charity. 

Thanks to charitable fundraising, four new incubators costing more than £90,000 were delivered to the hospital’s neonatal unit in October – and are already being used by babies born too small, too soon or very ill.

Every year the unit cares for around 350 babies – around 10 per cent of all babies born in Milton Keynes – where some are born as early as 27 weeks or weighing as little as 500 grams. These babies need special equipment such as incubators, which keep them safe, warm and protected.
