A new neonatal intensive care unit opens today as part of the extension plans for Rosie Maternity Hospital.

The new unit will provide all levels of neonatal care, including help for those babies that need specialist care after birth. In addition parents will receive more privacy and medical staff will have a better working environment.

It'll be the lead neonatal unit in the Anglia region, and when it becomes fully operational in 2020 it will be the largest unit in the country with 58 cots.
