Oliver Fisher Baby Care Unit

The Oliver Fisher Baby Unit is a tertiary neonatal facility caring for babies who require intensive care. We care for babies from Medway and the surrounding South East Thames region including Dartford, Gravesend, Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells. We also accept referrals from outside Kent.
Our 36-cot unit provides intensive care, high dependency, special and transitional care services for babies born prematurely or who are sick and require specialist treatment. Around 1,000 babies are treated here each year as part of our neonatal and maternity service.
Babies and families are cared for by a specialist team led by seven consultants and a neonatal matron.


Parents are invited to be with their babies at all times supporting our family integrated care model. Other family members and friends may visit with the parents.

Videos and virtual tours 

3D virtual tour of the Oliver Fisher Neonatal Unit has been made by the Kent Surrey and Sussex Neonatal Network so families can see where their baby is being admitted to, or transferred, to help alleviate anxiety if their baby requires neonatal care.

Users can self-navigate and stop and start the tour at any time to review a particular area of the unit in more detail. Information tags explain the different areas and the equipment used. It also provides an insight into the neonatal transport service as it includes a tour of the dedicated ambulance and transport incubator.

It was co-produced with families, working with Kent, Surrey and Sussex Parent Advisory Group (PAG), neonatal staff, Maternity and Neonatal Voices Partnership (MVPs and MNVPs), Local Maternity and Neonatal Services (LMNS) and Kent, Surrey and Sussex Operational Delivery Network (ODN).

Virtual tours of all 13 neonatal units in Kent, Surrey and Sussex can be found on the south east neonatal network website
