The Neonatal Taskforce, established by the DoH as a joint initiative with the NHS, has developed two draft documents: Standards for Neonatal Care and a Neonatal Care Commissioning Framework available for comment.
The taskforce has addressed three areas raised in the recent National Audit Office report Caring for Vulnerable Babies: The re-organisation of Neonatal care in England: Transport/Transfer, Workforce, Data for Commissioning. In addition the taskforce considered standards for the provision of neonatal surgery.
Consultation closes on 16 April 2009.
