Charity funds high-tech cots for neonatal unit

The Oliver Fisher Special Care Baby Trust (OFSCBT) charity supports the Oliver Fisher Neonatal Unit at Medway Maritime Hospital in Gillingham, Kent, which provides care to more than 1,000 babies a year.

Following fundraising, the OFSCBT has purchased 10 single and two twin Kanmed BabyBeds from Central Medical Supplies (CMS), the sole UK distributor for Kanmed.

Matron of the Oliver Fisher Neonatal Unit Sarah Clarke, says: “We needed to upgrade the cots on the special care ward, to benefit babies, parents and staff and the Kanmed BabyBed met all our needs. The drop-down sides provide our staff with quick and easy access to the babies in the case of an emergency. All of the new cots can also be raised and lowered to any height, making it easier for staff, parents and carers to provide care or take babies in and out of the cot.”

Tracey Pavier-Grant, Sales and Marketing Director at CMS, says: “It’s great news that the unit was able to secure funding from its charity to update the care given to neonates.”
