Win a Beautiful

3 Bed Georgian Home

Some people think I’m crazy to run a prize competition to sell our family home! But following a lot (and I mean a lot!) of research I knew it would be the right thing to do. I knew that the houses in this street are really popular and that I wanted to do something for two charities that are very close to my heart. This seemed like the perfect solution.

Keep Me Close

Our Charity

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Derriford Hospital cares for babies born from around the South West who have either been born prematurely or with other life threatening illnesses. As the ward has the highest level of expertise and equipment, the ward cares for babies from all over the South West and babies are often transferred from other hospitals for a higher level of care when needed. It is the only ward of its type this side of Bristol. In 2014 alone, the ward cared for 1209 babies and their families. We would be delighted if you would consider supporting our “Keep me Close” campaign aimed at providing new and improved parental accommodation for the parents of babies we care for on the ward.

Because of the nature of the babies we care for, the parents of the babies are encouraged to remain close by as, sadly, the lives of their children hang in the balance and we always want to ensure they are close by if we need to obtain approval for some treatment or in the worst cases, so that they can be with their babies in their final moments. During the time a baby is on the ward, we house as many parents as possible in our on-site accommodation. This is generally reserved for those parents who did not live in Plymouth so that they did not have a long travel in case they had to be involved in their baby’s treatment or discussions with the medical professionals. As you can imagine on an Intensive Care Unit, conditions can worsen very quickly. Currently we are only able to house four sets of parents. Three of our rooms are double rooms while one has a single bed and a put-up bed for emergencies. The rooms share one toilet and one shower and a microwave for cooking meals. These are hardly the best conditions for parents to live in with mother’s who have recently given birth and expressing breast milk for their critically ill children.

As it stands at the moment, as there are only 4 rooms, it is also the case that only the parents of four babies from out of area can remain on the ward. Any further parents would have to seek expensive alternative arrangements. The hospital do all in their power to ensure that this does not happen but it can lead to the parents of the “least-poorly” baby being asked to leave the ward. This is likely to be the case with most parents eventually and most find it heart breaking to have to leave their baby in the hospital when at a time then they may still be tube fed, totally reliant on a machine to assist them with breathing and weighing as little as 1lb in weight.

It has long been the dream of the hospital staff to provide better accommodation for the parents of the babies they care for and to provide a greater number of rooms to enable all “out of area” parents to remain on site for the duration of their baby’s care. These parents are dealing with an incredibly stressful time and creating a “home from home” would really help to take away a small amount of this stress by enabling life to remain as normal as possible under the circumstances.

If the hospital want to develop an area like this, they need to provide the funds for it themselves. They therefore introduced their “Keep me Close” campaign ( all dealt with under the general charitable umbrella of the Plymouth Hospitals General Charity with Registered Charity Number 1048679), aiming to raise the £2 million it is going to cost to completely redevelop a new area of the hospital and provide the parents of the babies with that all important home from home with en-suite bedrooms giving the families the space and privacy that these times require, fully functioning kitchens to enable the parents to prepare nutritious meals assisting in the well being of the parents and washing machines to enable the parents to truly be able to survive away from home. We will also be able to provide family areas for the parents to be able to spend time with their families and, in particular, the other children of the parents.
It is going to take many years to raise the total required but the quicker we can raise funds, the quicker we can make a difference and begin the process.

Given the number of babies that the ward cares for, it is likely that the staff on the ward will continue to affect the lives of well over 1,000 babies a year from in and around the South West.

Unfortunately, we do not yet have the medical expertise to prevent premature birth nor to avoid other birth defects or illnesses in young babies. It means that others will have to go through this same experience in the future and we just want to try to ensure that this experience is made as easy as it possibly can be in the circumstances and with your support we can begin this process.
