The following guidelines cover admissions to the Newborn Service for babies who have been delivered at home, have been discharged early or recently from NICU/PIN, and in whom problems arise.

Referrals may be from CED consultants or Postnatal Midwives and must be communicated via the level 2 consultant or registrar. GPs are expected to direct their referrals via CED.
This includes infants going directly to the postnatal wards with their mother as well as those being admitted to level 2 NICU.
