The Rosie: NICU

The Rosie Hospital, Cambridge


NICU shares the stories of three families from the East of England, whose lives have been transformed thanks to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at The Rosie Hospital.

“It provides an excellent insight into life on the unit. I hope that it will inspire people to support the unit’s fundraising activities.”
