Ashford and St Peter’s Hospital announce the launch of new Neonatal Intensive Care transport incubator system.

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at St Peter’s Hospital is delighted to announce the arrival of its new transport incubator system for use by the Surrey Neonatal Transfer Service. The fully equipped mobile intensive care unit for babies was launched at the Level 3 unit in March and has already made several journeys, including a trip to Swansea to bring a premature baby back home to Surrey.

The rig consists of a new ventilator, capable of delivering state of the art modes of breathing support including synchronised volume targeted ventilation and High Frequency Oscillatory Ventilation (HFOV) as well as non- invasive respiratory support modes such as Humidified High Flow Nasal Cannula (HHFNC) and Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP).

There is a unit on board to provide controlled body cooling during transit for babies who have sustained brain injury and a bank of syringe pumps to provide critical fluids and drugs. The transport trolley also incorporates advanced monitoring equipment for the continuous measurement of vital signs from sensors connected to the breathing tube, arterial line, and on the skin for enhanced safety during transfer in the dedicated ambulance.

In relation to the works, which started in January 2019, a series of public engagement events were held locally to enable residents and business owners to meet the SSEN team, find out more about the route of the works  and the multi-million pound project to upgrade the electricity network between Ascot and Chobham.  As a result of these meetings we have been working with Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Council and Surrey County Council to alleviate concerns raised by businesses and residents regarding the ongoing programme of roadworks.

The revised programme of works can be found above.

To keep up to date on our traffic management including road closures please visit roadworks.org and search for your postcode. 

There are no planned interruptions to the local electricity supply and this installation will not affect the existing supplies within the area.

Thames Valley Police (TVP) is launching a new service satisfaction survey which will ask the public to give feedback on their experiences when in contact with the force. 
From the 1st May 2019 TVP will be sending text messages to around 10,000 people a month who have contacted us to either report an incident or crime.
They will be asked to provide feedback on the response they received from the force.
The new text based survey is an expansion of the more in-depth telephone survey for which there currently is an overall satisfaction rate of 78.1 per cent.
The feedback is being gathered from the public in order to better understand the effectiveness of our response and how the force can improve the service provided.
People who have contacted Thames Valley Police, may be sent a text message to their mobile phone asking them to fill in a short text survey of just two questions.
We are aware that there are sensitivities around certain crimes and incidents for example in cases of domestic abuse. Due to these sensitivities texts will not be sent to victims involved in these cases.
