We are very grateful. 🙏🙏🙏 ... See MoreSee Less

Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing mums out there - especially those spending today with their baby on our neonatal unit.

To celebrate this day, we funded Mother's Day cards which our babies wrote to their mums having each taken a selfie. We hope our talented babies (and staff) help make a difficult day a little easier. 💌 💌 💌

Becky Shelley is Matron of the neonatal unit.
"I am responsible for 108 staff and work alongside divisional managers to make sure everything runs smoothly, including rotas, recruitment, budgets and staff training. My main responsibility is to make sure the unit is a safe environment for our babies, parents and staff. I joined UCLH as a nursery nurse in 1997, before training as a nurse... Even though I am a matron now, I’m still involved in the care of our babies – it’s a part of the job I really love."
