Meet our other parents and get involved
At Saint Mary's Hospital, we are keen to ensure that we provide
the best possible service to families whilst your baby is being
cared for on the NICU. The Newborn Intensive
Care Parent Forum provides an opportunity for parents
whose babies have been discharged from the unit to meet with our
staff and discuss your experience of our service in an informal
We are keen to hear your feedback, to identify areas of good
practice and also to identify areas where we could do better.
The forum also gives us an opportunity to present and discuss new
ideas with parents prior to implementation.
What does the group do?
The group's main focus is Family Centred Care. To date,
members of the group have been involved in developing a Unit
Philosophy, introducing Parent Care Plans and the opening of the
parents' sitting room.
The group usually meets once every three months in the evenings
(usually at 7.00 pm) at Saint Mary's Hospital. Group members
are kept informed of dates and activities, etc, via e-mail.
