Tuesday 17 November 2020 was World Prematurity Day, one of the most important days in the year to raise awareness about premature births and the impact on families.
The Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH) Foundation could not think of a more appropriate way to mark the day than with the launch of Queensland’s first interhospital transfer service for our tiniest patients.
Every year more than 1,600 premature and sick newborns are admitted to the Grantley Stable Neonatal Unit for specialist care and management.
The new Running for Premature Babies NeoRESQ service will operate within a 150km radius of Brisbane, relieving the pressure on the Queensland Ambulance Service and returning babies, once they are well enough, to a hospital closer to home.
The RBWH Foundation now has the goal of raising $20,000 every year to keep this incredible service on the road.
You can help Queensland's tiniest patients by donating the following:
$40 can provide enough fuel for 5 round trips to Ipswich Hospital
$80 can provide enough fuel for 5 round trips to Sunshine Coast Hospital
$120 can provide enough fuel for 9 round trips to Gold Coast Hospital
$240 can provide enough fuel for 5 round trips to Toowoomba Hospital
$20,000 will fund the service for a year
