Neonatal units rely on specialist equipment to save, treat and monitor premature babies, and to support the family at what is a highly emotional and stressful time. But NHS budgets do not stretch to ensure the latest and most effective equipment is available. That’s why it’s our mission to provide neonatal equipment to special care baby units that improve the chances of a new life surviving and thriving.
