Neonatal care in Liverpool is going through an exciting period of change with the �15 million development of the Liverpool Women's Hospital (LWH) site and the Liverpool Neonatal Partnership (LNP) with Alder Hey Children's Hospital (AHCH) to develop a single service across the city.
Our new �15m extension was completed in February 2020, providing a state of the art environment for the babies and families of Liverpool. The NICU at LWH is a dynamic, diverse and growing service renowned for high standards of clinical care, research and education.

We are also the tertiary NICU for Cheshire and Merseyside.Main duties of the job
