The Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) at Conquest Hospital is a Level 1 unit providing special care for babies in East Sussex. Our aim is to provide care for babies needing extra help and support, based on a family centered approach.
There are many different needs for babies admitted to the SCBU. When your baby is admitted to special care, you will have many questions, and our team will support you and encourage you to be involved in your baby’s care.
Information on these pages is for parents to understand what to expect in the SCBU, and how to contact us and other useful information.
