NNeTS operates a family-centred approach to transport and wherever possible will aim to offer to transport one parent with their baby. Sometimes this is not possible due to the number of seats available in the ambulance, the medical status of the parent, or when a larger, extended team has been deployed for specific cases. We have information for parents whose babies are being moved and our teams consider parents moving on a case by case basis.
We also recommend that parents access and download the free “Parent App” that is available on both the iTunes and Android/Google Play App stores. Available as a free resource, it contains a host of information about the Northern Neonatal Network and its Neonatal Units, the NNeTS transport service as well as useful pages that focus on all aspects of your baby’s care.
