Little Roo Neonatal Fund

Little Roo Neonatal Fund supports poorly and premature babies, their families and the staff who care for them on St Peter’s Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.


Background Information

In the past twenty years the care of babies born very early, or with unexpected problems, has improved immensely, with great improvements in survival and outlook. This work is increasingly specialised and requires a highly trained and dedicated team, available at all times. In Surrey the only hospital with the appropriate staff, equipment, skills, and experience to provide this highest level of intensive care for the smallest and sickest newborn babies is St Peter’s Hospital.

In 2005 a new nursery with eight intensive care cots was opened by HRH The Countess of Wessex, A further four intensive care spaces were added in 2017. The costs of the building work and extra staff were met by the NHS, but to provide the specialised equipment we needed charitable funds.

The Little Roo Neonatal Fund was set up by a dedicated and passionate team of neonatal unit staff and parents and is part of the Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals Charitable Trust (Reg Charity 1058567) with the specific aim of supporting poorly and premature babies, their families, and the staff who care for them on the NICU.

Each Neonatal Intensive care cot costs in the region of £100,000 to fully equip, with the help of you, our amazing community we have been able to purchase an ultrasound machine (£60k), equipment to help babies breathe (£4k to £30k each), a breast milk pasteuriser (£25k), a mobile transport unit to provide intensive care while transferring sick babies between hospitals and devices to monitor and treat babies with a brain injury (£22-28k).

There is an ongoing need for additional and replacement life-saving equipment, and to equip staff with additional specialist training to enable the best possible outcomes for tiny patients.

All investments are made over and above what the NHS provides.

The Little Roo Neonatal Fund therefore raises money to provide the support that the St Peter’s Neonatal Unit continues to require to offer the highest standards of intensive care for babies born in Surrey and further afield.

You can make a big difference to tiny patients by making a donation.
