The Neonatal Unit at Macclesfield District General Hospital cares for babies from across the East Cheshire area. Many of these will suffer from Jaundice as it is very common in new born babies. The treatment for jaundice is by phototherapy which alters the bilirubin in the body allowing it to be excreted.

A preterm or sick baby is more likely to develop kernicterus and permanent brain damage from Jaundice if bilirubin is not reduced to safe levels in the body. It is beneficial for the baby for the phototherapy treatment to be completed over a shorter time.

The Neonatal Unit at Macclesfield has requested 4 new Phototherapy Units to replace the old, less efficient models that are currently in use. The new models will clear the bilirubin at a faster rate which will reduce the treatment time ensuring an earlier discharge from hospital.

“The switch adapted toys have been a wonderful addition to our school. Both staff and children were thrilled to have some new exciting resources. The children love the lights and movement many of these switch toys have and are highly motivated to explore and investigate how to make them work. They have been great for pupils to develop their understanding of cause and effect and we have also noticed improved concentration and engagement when using them. Often it can be difficult to find toys that are robust enough to withstand lots of heavy use AND be interesting and fun. These new resources tick all those boxes. They have made a noticeable impact on the children’s development in this area.”
