Elective transfers Daytime only.
We will undertake elective transfers from any London unit,
with any distance inside mainland UK considered. These would usually be nurse-led
repatriation (back-transfer) of non-ventilated babies. Transfer of babies for
routine investigations (e.g. EEG, EMG)and tertiary outpatient clinics would
also fall under the elective remit. Elective transfers are charged to the CCG
of the referring unit and are no longer charged to individual NHS Trusts.
Remit of service Neonatal transfers only.
Any transfer where either the source or destination unit is a Neonatal unit.
Operational remit All uplift and capacity transfers 24/7
