Premature babies: lives in the balance
ITV News has recently produced a special feature about the importance of safe transportation of premature babies.
A year ago this month a specialist transport service was set up by a team at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle. It’s equipped with specialist medicine and life support – on a minute scale – to make sure the life-saving moves are as safe as possible.
640 babies have been transported in the first 12 months.
