​​What is ANTS?

Acute Neonatal Transfer Service

East of England NHS

''We are a team of senior neonatal doctors, specialist nurses, EBS coordinators and drivers who provide specialist transfer services for babies across the East of England and beyond.''

Babies will be transferred out of their local hospitals into Level 3 units if they need intensive care.

Babies will be transferred back to their local hospital when they are more stable so that their local hospital gets to know them and that there is room in level 3 units for other sick babies to be treated.
