Get involved in the new SCBU Dads’ Team

Dad's Team logo







Matt Cray, part of the Northern Neonatal Transport Service at the RVI, has recently established a dads group within the hospital, in order to offer unique support to dads who have a child on the unit.

It is acknowledged that a dad may have a completely different emotional experience to a mum when their child has to spend time on the Neonatal Unit. The dads group helps to cater for this in a friendly, informal environment.

The team is made up of dads who have experienced life on the unit, who will be chatting to and offering support to dads that are currently on SCBU with their child. The dates of the next few meetings are:

Saturday 1st September 2018

Sunday 23rd September 2018

Sunday 7th October 2018  

Sunday 21st October 2018 

As usual, sessions will take place in the Fetal Medicine Seminar Room next to Ward 35, 6.30pm – 7.30pm. For more information please contact Matt at

If you are a dad that would like to share your story about your time on the unit, please contact Matt or send an email to
