The Canterbury Neonatal Service provides a holistic family/whanau oriented model of care.  We view the baby/peepi as being the focus for our planning of care and for this reason, we have incorporated a "Developmentally Supportive Care" philosophy for all our babies/peepi.

The Neonatal Service provides 24-hour care for newborn babies with a variety of special needs.  This includes prematurity, surgery, congenital abnormalities and babies who may have been compromised at birth.

Care is provided by a skilled and experienced multi-disciplinary team utilising current evidence based practice.
