A prospective survey of activity in neonatal nurseries associated with 17 specialist maternity units delivering some 38 700 babies in the Northern region was undertaken during 1991 Data were collected concerning the numbers of babies requiring various forms of neonatal care, using a nursing dependency scale validated by work study.
Facilities for prolonged high dependency care are partially decentralised in the Northern region, with a network of five units operating on a flexible and collaborative basis.
The data collected suggest that, with such arrangements, even peak demands for non-surgical high dependency nursing care can be met by the provision of 1.0 cot per 1000 births.
