Testimonials

Professor Ben Stenson

Neonatal Unit Liaison

 

"It is impossible to understate the value of the support that our service receives from SSCB. It enables us to aspire to excellence in all our activities. Being able to purchase the most up to date equipment promptly makes a big difference to our ability to deliver advanced care.

 

We also think that our most important equipment is our staff. Investing in their expertise brings lasting changes to the quality of care. Research funding advances our knowledge and trains the next generation of specialists to join our team and keep us strong. Every donation, large or small, makes a difference to what we can achieve. Thank you SSCB."

Dr Julie-Clare Becher

Consultant Neonatologist

 

"The new cerebral function monitor provided by SSCB shows us when babies are having seizures, and whether or not their brains are showing signs of improvement. This machine gives us state of the art accurate, information which allows us to provide the highest quality care. Thank you SSCB."

Julie Cleary

Transport team

 

"Neonatal transport road trolley: The purchase of the Transporter 2 trolley along with monitoring and infusion devices allows us to provide best evidenced intensive care to babies requiring transport. In particular, the purchase of the Fabian HFO ventilator allows us to provide all modes of ventilation, including high flow nasal cannula and high frequency oscillation, both of which were not available on our previous road transport kit."

Clare Russell

Transport team

"Cerebral function monitor: The Unique CFM device allows us to monitor the brainwave activity of babies at referring centres and on neonatal transport. This additional information can be very useful in guiding treatment, such as the use of anti-seizure medicine and the use of therapeutic hypothermia (cooling)."

Lyndsey Stewart

Transport team

"Tecotherm: This servo-controlled therapeutic hypothermia (cooling) kit will replace our previously used Criticool device. Because of it’s smaller size, when fitted onto our transport trolley it will allow us to provide servo-controlled cooling treatment in any type of ambulance."

Dr Gopi Menon

Consultant

"Simpson Special Care Babies funded the purchase of Bayley developmental assessment equipment and the training of personnel in using it. Bayley assessment is considered the gold standard in assessing babies born premature and is now used routinely in this group allowing detailed assessment of the children and providing data for audit of our service."

Lynne Kerr

Clinical Nurse Manager

"The Neonatal Unit is privileged to have the support of SSCB. Their dedication and commitment to enhancing the care provided to the babies and their families is so appreciated. We work closely with the charity to ensure that all donations are put to the best possible use. SSCB share our aim of providing the highest quality, family-centred care and help us achieve this by purchasing specialist equipment, supporting staff development as well as funding research. We are very grateful to everyone involved, some of whom do the most amazing things to raise funds for the charity – SSCB really do make a difference."
