Some great discussions from the FICare working group. The upcoming framework will explain exactly how units can build on their work on family-centred care and take this to the next level.

Loving these for our nurseries! Thank you @LTHTPaedPhysio Parents love them too! https://t.co/ruNsvkJXOd

Quoted @GLANCE_Network

GLANCE fully supports this position statement by the international #FICare steering group. Babies need their parents to be present in the #NICU during the #COVID19 pandemic! https://t.co/Q51ay76iEs

Babies need their parents to be with them, even during a pandemic, read our statement @JayBane88246536 @DeierlA @karel_obrien @Liz_McKechnie @LeeShoo @EFCNIwecare @FabianaBacchini @SilkeMader @crwaddington #familyintegratedcare #togetherforbettercare #zeroseparation. https://t.co/3p9UHV8wYO

Quoted @NeonatalAPPG

APPG Chair @DavidLinden today raised the impact of #coronavirus on the parents of premature & sick babies with the health secretary, drawing attention to @Blisscharity's #ParentsArentVisitors campaign. https://t.co/eJmbYTEHVY

So good to see this being raised in Parliament. Neonatal care puts huge stress on families - added to tremendously by Covid-19. #FICare #familyintegratedcare https://t.co/v6ddCpB372

In a neonatal unit, What PPE are you now wearing in rooms that have AGPs in them eg. CPAP, ventilation? Not including intubation.

Please spare a RT for all the NHS lab staff who have processed millions of tests over the past few months.

These people never get a mention, but they have worked tirelessly and helped save thousands of lives. https://t.co/et6fnPDu13

Note to @BBCr4today & other broadcasters. Please stop referring to the failed “NHS Track & Trace App”. The NHS has nothing to do with it. This was an un-tendered commercial app, endorsed by @MattHancock & given to SERCO to deliver. SERCO & Hancock failed - not our NHS.

Also to add another36km in the Peak District and 2 lots of 10km in the Dales from v committed colleagues!
