Attached are the guidelines used by the NEST team in transport. These are intended to be used in combination with the input of a tertiary Neonatologist. 

 

Any infant who is clinically deteriorating and may require transfer should be discussed at the earliest point. This may prevent the team being dispatched on a lower dependency job, thus delaying transfer of a more unwell infant.
