BBC newsreader helps celebrate new family centred care role at St George’s Hospital
BBC newsreader Sophie Raworth was the special guest at St George’s Hospital, Tooting, on 21st November, helping to celebrate the new family centred care (FCC) coordinator role created to provide support for families of premature and sick babies in southwest London.
The full-time post is shared between Bobbie Everson and Lyndsey Hookway who are based on the hospital’s neonatal unit and work with families to provide information and support; ensuring that the very best care is delivered to parents at what is an extremely challenging and difficult time. The innovative role has been created by First Touch, St George’s neonatal unit charity, for whom Sophie Raworth is a patron and Bliss, the national special care baby charity. Both charities are working closely with St George’s Hospital and the South West London Perinatal Network.
