The NTS works with the Neonatal Units in South West Midlands (SWMN ODN) to provide a safe and timely transfer/retrieval service for the babies.

This is to ensure that babies are cared for in the right place and at the right time and where possible nearer to home (DOH 2003). See below for a list of the hospitals in each network, and the level of care they are able to provide.

Southern Newborn Network (SWMNN)

From 1st July NTS and KIDS (Kids Intensive care and Decision Support) have merged at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. For in-utero, neonatal and paediatric referrals please call 0300 200 1100.
