Gosset Ward is a neonatal intensive care unit which cares for newborn babies who require some form of special high dependency or intensive care nursing.

Most of the babies admitted to Gosset are due to premature births. The normal length of pregnancy is 37 - 42 weeks gestation, so a baby born before 37 weeks is premature.

It is expected that babies less than 34 weeks will be admitted to the unit. Babies at 34 weeks or more will only be admitted to Gosset if they need specialist care. It is not unusual to admit full term babies to the unit for various reasons.

The unit is part of the Central Newborn Network and is a designated level two unit and is allowed to practice intensive care for babies of 27 weeks' gestation or above.

Upon arrival, you will be given an admission pack containing lots of useful information. This will include introductory leaflets and booklets to help you look after your baby. Additional leaflets are available that are relevant to your baby.
