King’s College Hospital in South East London is a large teaching hospital at the forefront of academic and nursing excellence. The Neonatal Unit is a level 3 provider in the South London Neonatal Network, offering a wide range of services both to the local diverse community and national specialist neonatal services.

In addition to the care of premature babies, we accept specialist referrals for abdominal, neurological and eye surgery and for the world-wide celebrated liver service at King’s. We work hand in hand with the internationally renowned Harris Birthright Centre to deliver highly specialised care to vulnerable newborns and holistic care to the family. The most recent national MBRRACE audit (2017) rated our services as one of the best in the country for neonatal mortality and morbidity. We run a Transitional Care service in partnership with maternity provision. Based within the postnatal ward it will aim to decrease the incidence of mothers and babies being separated while their baby receives treatment in the post-natal period of care.
