Neonatal Intensive and High Dependency Care

Pinderfields Hospital provides a specialist centre for Neonatal Intensive and High Dependency Care, where expert staff care for very premature or very ill newborn babies from across North Kirklees and the Wakefield district within the latest facilities.  This is located on Level C, Gate 19.


Dewsbury and District Hospital has a Special Care Baby Unit with 14 cots to care for premature or sick babies from Dewsbury and the surrounding district. Only the most complicated births or most seriously ill babies will need to be cared for at Pinderfields Hospital.


These specialist centres are the best way to ensure that the smallest and sickest babies get the best possible care and the best chance of surviving healthily.  The increased capacity of our units will help to ensure that more babies can be treated in the mid Yorkshire area and therefore closer to home.
