30 November 2022

National experts in the field of Neonatal Transport gathered in Sheffield recently for the UK National Neonatal Transport Group Conference 2022.

The two-day event was hosted by Embrace in Sheffield, and gave neonatal transport professionals an opportunity to exchange and share good practice, ideas and experiences on activity throughout the UK.

The first day began with a clinical lead forum for nursing and medical leads of all transport teams in the UK, before 200 attendees arrived for the conference the following day. This included talks on future developments in transport improving both the experience of patients and families, and discussions around what research should be a focus for the Neonatal Transport Group.

Embrace is a highly specialist, round-the-clock transport service for critically ill infants and children in Yorkshire and the Humber who require care in another hospital in the region or further afield. In 2021/22 the service carried out 1,975 transports across Europe – including flights to France, Belgium and Cyprus.

Dr Cath Harrison, Clinical Lead at Embrace and UK Neonatal Transport Group Chair said: “Over 200 delegates attended, and together we focused on transport of the future, different transport modes, ‘green’ transport, and how to develop good team working models. We were delighted to hear from Justin Grace, Sprint Coach for GB Olympic Cycling Team.

“Embrace hosted this meeting over 10 years ago, just after being established. It’s fitting that 10 years down the line, Embrace can host it again as an internationally recognised transport service, and one of the largest in the UK.”
