Clinical transport guidelines
These clinical guidelines represent the views of the Southampton Oxford Neonatal Transport team. They have been produced after careful consideration of available evidence in conjunction with clinical expertise and experience. These clinical guidelines relate to use in SONeT neonatal transport.
The guidance does not override the individual responsibility of healthcare professionals to make decisions appropriate to the circumstances of the individual patient.
Clinical advice is always available from SONeT on a case by case basis. Please feel free to contact us regarding these documents if there are any queries.
