The Teddy Care Appeal is the Oliver Fisher Special Care Baby Trusts brand new appeal for 2016.  We are aiming to raise £200,000 for the redevelopment of our Transitional Care Nursery. Transitional Care was opened in 2000 and it is there to ensure mothers and their babies are kept together after delivery should the baby require a small amount of medical intervention but does not require admission to Neonatal Intensive Care unit.  It is a rare facility to find within the NHS, but Medway Maritime Hospital is lucky to have this service due to funding from the Oliver Fisher charity.  Over recent years it has become apparent that the ward is no longer operating to its full potential in its current format.  Storage cupboards and “pull out” beds that were originally installed are not suitable for women after delivery, who possible could have undergone surgery.  Space is minimal and does not allow mothers to move around freely to care for their babies.  The charity trust would like to raise £200,000 in 2016 to completely alter the layout of the existing bed spaces to make them as comfortable as possible for the mothers and babies we look after there; there will also be the provision of better clinical area and office area with 2 brand new bathrooms. These changes will also provide the full capacity for 8 babies and their mothers. To support our appeal please see our campaign page here.
