Supporting Neonatal Care at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

100% of donations go towards giving our tiny patients the best possible chance at life.


Scoo-B-Doo Registered Charity

Scoo-B-Doo works alongside Gloucester Royal Special Care Baby Unit to buy the best and most advanced equipment available to help save babies in need of special care. Through fundraising efforts for equipment such as ventilators, incubators and monitors, Scoo-B-Doo helps to save babies who are struggling.

The charity is run entirely by a volunteer team of doctors, ward staff and members of the public. 100% of every donation goes towards supporting the ward, it's tiny patients and their families.

Neonatal intensive care Gloucester Royal Hospital

Supporting sick and premature babies

Scoo-B-Doo was established in 1983 by a small group of grateful parents, doctors and nurses to support the Neonatal Unit at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital . Today, the charity funds critical equipment and facilities to help care for sick and premature babies from Gloucestershire and beyond.

Over 80% of the equipment used on the ward every day has been funded by Scoo-B-Doo.

The NHS does it’s part too, providing a building and paying for all of the dedicated medical staff as well as the life-saving drugs used on the ward. But with the NHS under constant financial pressure, the money Scoo-B-Doo raises is vital in supporting the survival of these vulnerable patients.
