Motion text

That this House is aware of the recently held Prematurity Day, part of the international campaign to raise awareness of the 15 million babies born too soon each year across the globe; recalls that 70,000 babies in England are admitted to specialist hospital care every year because they are born premature or sick; pays tribute to the organisation Bliss for its supportive work in this sector; notes especially its SOS Report, which found that one in three hospitals caring for premature and sick babies are having to make cuts amongst their nursing workforce; and calls on the Government to guarantee that sufficient finances will be granted to ensure such vital care is continued.
