Neonatal Guidelines


On these pages, we have the guidelines used by the Neonatal team at Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals.

Please note that some documents may only be available on our Trust intranet.


Our Philosophy of Care

For every baby and their family admitted to our Neonatal Unit, we aim to provide excellence in family centred care within a safe and nurturing environment.

Working in partnership, we will compassionately support and encourage parents and families to participate in all aspects of their babies care.

We have a research based approach to neonatal care and encourage personal and professional development of all our staff.

It is our belief that every baby should be treated with respect and dignity throughout their unique journey, maintaining confidentiality at all times.
