SCBU achieves Unicef’s baby friendly accreditation

Congratulations to the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) team, who have passed stage one of the Baby Friendly Initiative in Neonatal Services.

The initiative has been developed by Unicef and successful completion demonstrates we have met their standards to support all mothers with feeding and to help parents build a close and loving relationship with their baby.

Unicef highly commended the team for their work and said: “There is clear commitment from the team to ensure the implementation of the neonatal standards, with a positive collaboration between the neonatal and maternity services with joint training in place.”

The SCBU team will continue working jointly with maternity services towards passing the stage two assessment, which we are aiming to achieve in autumn 2019.
