Thanks to all your wonderful donations and support we have recently been able to buy this Cerebral Function Monitor (costing nearly £16,000) for the Neonatal Unit. This will be an invaluable new piece of equipment for all the doctors and nurses. It will help many newborn babies who have experienced Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy, cardiac arrest, seizures, Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome, and many other neurological disorders.

Thank you so much once again for helping us to buy this for the Unit.
