RCN: More specialist nurses needed for babies

RCN: More specialist nurses needed for babies

Commenting on the report ‘Baby steps to better care’ newly published by the special care baby charity Bliss, Dr Peter Carter, Chief Executive & General Secretary of the Royal College of Nursing, said:

We fully support this report’s findings and call for a concerted effort by government to tackle the shortfall in neonatal nurses so that all babies receive the highest quality of care.

A clear, long-term and properly funded UK-wide strategy to recruit and retain more of these specialist nurses must become a high priority. Without such a strategy, babies and their parents will continue to miss-out on the high-quality intensive care and vital information these nurses are able to provide.

The RCN is keen to work with all relevant parties in ensuring that these most vulnerable of patients get the essential that care they need
