I write in response to your Official Information Act request received by us 22nd September 2020, you requested the following information:

  • How many NICU beds is CMDHB funded for?
  • What were the occupancy levels, broken down by year, over the last three years (including this year so far) - eg how many babies were in the unit and how often is the unit at or above capacity?
  • How many women had to be sent away to give birth because of capacity issues over the last three years, including this year up to now?
  • What are the additional costs associated with increasing cot capacity above budget - could you tell me by how much the unit went over budget over the last five years, broken down by year?
  • How much has the CMDHB spent on sending women away to give birth over the last five years. broken down by year?
  • Is the CMDHB expecting an increase in resourcing for its neonatal staffing in this year's budget and has this been signed off by the ministry yet? If so, by how much?
