Service Description:

GMNeTS covers a large geographical area currently including 12 hospitals with maternity and neonatal services and one midwifery led unit, the Corbar Maternity Unit, in Buxton. GMNeTS also provides an out of hours Neonatal Transport Service for the Lancashire and South Cumbria Neonatal Network covering nights, weekends and Bank Holidays.

GMNeTS aims to undertake all emergency and pre-planned transfers of neonates between referring and admitting NICUs within the Network and, when staffing allows, may also transfer Network neonates for planned out-patient appointments. In addition, when circumstances dictate, the team will also transfer neonates in and out of the region thus ensuring that the care of neonates is not restricted by the availability of intensive care cots in an individual unit (i.e. only close to where the neonate is born or lives).

Like the North West Cot Bureau, GMNeTS is based on the Newborn Intensive Care Unit at Saint Mary's Hospital in Manchester.
