The team comprises of two Specialist Midwives, who run a feeding challenges clinic and six Lime Green Feeding Team Health Care Support Workers.

The Trust has had UNICEF Baby Friendly Accreditation since 2014 and the Maternity department achieved Level 3 re-accreditation in 2019 and is working towards Gold Award status. The Neonatal Team is looking forward to obtaining level 1 and level 2 accreditation.
