Newcastle – Affiliate NICU Group

Have you had a premature or sick baby?

Are you looking for local support with a difference?

The Royal Victoria Infirmary (RVI) in Newcastle Special Care Baby family support team have set up a ‘befriending buddy system’ to help parents on and off the neonatal unit to contact other parents to gain information and advice.

If you would like to attend the group or speak on the phone to local parents or grandparents who have experienced neonatal care, please contact Claire who is a Senior Staff Nurse on the unit and holds a special interest in family support.

The group also meets informally for a chat and cuppa on the unit.

Where: Royal Victoria Infirmary, Queen Victoria Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear, NE1 4LP
