If your baby needs specialist follow up care when they are discharged from SCBU, this will be provided by either Catherine, who covers Selby and surrounding areas or Bernie, who covers York and north of the city. They are both experienced Neonatal Nurses that work in the Community but are based out of SCBU and provide a close link with hospital and home.

“Their philosophy is to ensure the babies, parents and families are given the most appropriate care and support, and that it is delivered effectively and efficiently.”


These are on the first Friday of every month from 1 – 2.30pm in the Children’s Centre. It involves a coffee/tea and a chat for ex SCBU mums and babies, with other family members welcome. There are also plenty of toys for older siblings too. Catherine and Bernie are available for advice but it mainly involves mums having a chat and catch up about their babies and swapping stories and tips about progress so far.
