Babies with complex needs

If a baby, after short term intensive care at East Surrey Hospital, remains unstable, or has complex needs, or requires surgery, he or she will be transferred to Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, or St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey, or one of the London Neonatal Intensive Care Units for their ongoing care.

The transfer is facilitated by the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Neonatal Transport Service, which runs a 24-hour retrieval service.
