NICU – Plymouth

University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust

Derriford NICU has gone through a lot recently and despite this everyone has joined together to make the working day (or night) enjoyable. The team are extremely dedicated, you can tell that they enjoy their jobs and take pride in their work. Despite issues, the teaching continues, cake Fridays and team breakfast weekends are still encouraged and team work is exemplary. Derriford has been a delight to work in, it doesn’t have the fancy building, spacious areas and rest facilities of other units but it still manages to maintain very important elements required for excellent neonatal care and teaching for the junior members of staff.
