The Department currently has no plans to allocate funding specifically for the improvement of facilities for families on neonatal units. Plans to allocate funding specifically for the improvement of facilities for families on neonatal units are the responsibility of individual hospital trusts. When designing neonatal services, the Department expects trusts to follow the principles set out in the ‘Toolkit for high-quality neonatal services’ which includes the provision of dedicated facilities for parents and families of babies receiving neonatal care.
