Breastfeeding is widely known to be beneficial to a baby’s health as the mother’s milk contains antibodies that offer lifelong protection from disease. Some mothers have chosen to breastfeed their baby, but have to be separated from their child when it is born, for a variety of social care reasons.

The team at Blackburn Birth Centre want to purchase a grade double breast pump to help the birth mother to express milk, which can then be fed to the baby, giving it all the nutritional benefits this provides.

“Infections of the central nervous system need urgent and appropriate treatment. Most laboratory methods can take from 24 to 48 hours for diagnosis of bacterial meningitis and three to seven days for diagnosis of viral meningitis or encephalitis. The new equipment will mean we can get results of these tests in around an hour. We’ll be able to inform the clinicians of a positive result, allowing targeted therapy and reassurance to the patients and families. Just as important is the reporting of negative results, which may enable treatment withdrawal and possibly a shorter hospital stay.”
