MRF comment on neonatal babies

05 June 2014

Further to the sad news this week that a baby has died and 14 more in neonatal intensive care units at six hospitals across England have contracted septicaemia as a result of allegedly contaminated food drips our CEO Christopher Head commented:

"We are desperately sorry to hear that one baby has died and 14 more have septicaemia because of an allegedly contaminated food drip. Septicaemia is dangerous at any age, but very tiny babies are especially vulnerable. The UK’s meningitis charities have worked with health professionals to develop Your Guide for parents leaving hospital with a child affected by septicaemia. We can provide ongoing support and information once they are home and have extensive information on our website."
