Neonatal Transport Service (GMNeTS)
The Greater Manchester Neonatal Transport Service (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
neonatal units within the Network and, when staffing allows, may
also transfer Network neonates for planned out-patient
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 Neonatal
Intensive Care Unit at Saint Mary's Hospital in Manchester.
