Equipment

First Touch funds medical equipment for the neonatal unit that is outside of the scope of NHS funds. We are able to buy state-of-the-art equipment for the unit much quicker than the NHS can often provide it and so we can ensure the unit has the very best equipment available enabling staff to give babies first class care.
