Holding answer received on 17 June 2019

Following the internal review of provisions for parents or premature, sick and multiple babies that was conducted by the Department, we will consult on options for providing further support to the parents of premature, sick and multiple babies before the end of the Summer. The consultation will be informed by the findings of this review.

I am very grateful to Bliss, The Smallest Things and TAMBA for the support that they have provided to BEIS officials on this matter.
