Portsmouth hospital receives award for family-friendly neonatal care

The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Portsmouth's Queen Alexandra Hospital has become only the second unit in the UK to gain accreditation for its family-centred care under the Bliss Baby Charter.

In a ceremony held on the unit, Caroline Davey, Chief Executive of Bliss, the charity for premature and sick babies, presented staff with a plaque and certificate marking their achievement.

She said: "I am delighted to recognise the ongoing dedication of staff on this neonatal unit to putting babies and their families at the heart of everything they do. Their family-friendly approach makes a vital difference every day to all the babies they care for, as well as to parents and families."

Portsmouth's award follows a two-year process of audit, action and evaluation involving health professionals and parents. The NICU has also been awarded a Gold Star Ward Accreditation for Leadership by its parent Trust, and is working towards UNICEF's Baby Friendly Initiative accreditation.
