New specialist nurse service for Norfolk and Suffolk

  • Comment

Bliss, the special care baby charity, has announced a new nursing post to support the families of premature and sick babies in the East of England.

The Bliss Nurse will be based at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, but will work across Norfolk and Suffolk to support families in these areas.

Ghislaine Watson, formerly a midwife at the NNUH has been appointed as the new Bliss family-centred care nurse. 

She will be based in NNUH’s neonatal unit and will support a number of hospitals in the region that provide neonatal care, including Ipswich, Kings Lynn and James Paget.

Ms Watson said: “I am really excited to start this new role in Norwich. Being on a neonatal unit is daunting and stressful for parents and I hope I can bring some normality back into their lives.

“I aim to involve parents as much as possible and make them feel an important part of their babies care.”

Bliss head of programmes Jane Abbott said: “We are thrilled to be introducing this important role to help families of premature and sick babies in the Norwich and Suffolk area.

“This is a very exciting and positive step to ensure the whole family is being supported and cared for at what is a very stressful and challenging time.”
