The Lister Neonatal Unit Familes Group was set up (under the name "Lister Hospital SCBU Support Group") in 2009 by Lisa and Camilla, whose little boys both spent time in special care after their birth. This is us back then.
We wanted to do something to help support families going through experiences similar to our own, and also give something back to the neonatal unit through fundraising.
Our goal is to help create a community of people who care about the neonatal unit and the families who use it, and try to make the frightening experience of needing our local neonatal unit as good as it can be.
Over the years since we started the group has grown. We now have an informal committee of around 8 parents and members of staff who meet every 1 - 2 months to develop the group. We are always looking for new people to join us, so please get in touch if you think you might be interested.
