Having a new born baby in special care brings a lot of extra expense, including travel costs, parking, extra child care and missed days at work. We are able to offer some assistance with travel and parking costs, as well as providing canteen vouchers.

Depending on how close you live to the hospital depends on how much you qualify for with travel expenses. The minimum you will get is £10 per week.

Expenses, along with reimbursement for parking passes, will be paid directly in to your bank account on the 30th of each month.


The grant covers travel and parking expenses. Canteen vouchers are available on the ward – please ask a member of staff. Vouchers are to be used in the Hospital Canteen only and are not accepted in Costa/M&S. Only one voucher can be cleaned by each parent per day.
