Supporting sick and premature babies at St George’s Hospital

The Neonatal Unit (NNU) at St George’s Hospital cares for over 600 new-born babies each year (up to 39 at any one time) in the intensive, high dependency and special care nurseries at the hospital, which is based in Tooting, South West London.

Many of the babies we care for have simply been born prematurely. Some mothers have only just reached 24 weeks of pregnancy (40 weeks is generally considered normal). However, with the right care, these babies can grow up to be healthy, happy children.
