The Department of Neonatology operates across two sites; the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton (3500 deliveries) and the Princess Royal Hospital, Haywards Heath (2400 deliveries). A team of Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioners has been developed across both RSCH and PRH sites and delivers a unique nurse-led neonatal service at PRH.


The Trevor Mann Baby Unit (TMBU) is based at the Royal Sussex County Hospital (RSCH) and has recently undergone a major refurbishment. It provides a level 3 neonatal intensive care service for Sussex and the Surrey and Sussex Neonatal Network. There are approximately 500 admissions and in excess of 2000 intensive care cot days each year. There are 27 cots on the unit, including 9 currently designated for intensive care, 8 for high dependency and 10 for special care. There are facilities for high frequency ventilation, nitric oxide and total body cooling for asphyxiated infants. A neonatal surgical service runs in conjunction with the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital located on the Royal Sussex County site.


There are facilities in the maternity unit for fetal assessment and fetal medicine and referrals are accepted for perinatal care prior to neonatal surgery. The neonatal service has comprehensive support from paediatric radiology, paediatric surgery, perinatal pathology, pharmacy, echocardiography, audiology, and ophthalmology and has visiting support from other tertiary specialists. The Sussex Neonatal Transport Service is based on TMBU with a dedicated vehicle and driver. In collaboration with similar services in Kent and Surrey, the service undertakes 400 emergency and elective transfers each year throughout the south east of England.
