Cake Sale for Little Buds Fund

On Wednesday 7th December Midwife Mel Henderson and the Maternity Department held a Christmas card and cake sale in the main foyer of the hospital to raise money for our Little Buds Fund, which supports our Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU). Over 5,000 babies a year are born at Darent Valley Hospital and occasionally some of these need that extra bit of assistance, and this is where the Special Care Baby Unit comes in. The Maternity Departments strives to ensure that every child born has the very best possible care from the moment they are conceived to those needing special care after the birth. The hospital has an excellent SCBU but with the help of the Little Buds Fund additional equipment can be purchased which support the babies and the unit.


Well done to Mel and her team for raising these very important funds.
