The RBWH Foundation helps our tiniest babies move closer to home.
Travelling over two hours to and from the hospital daily to see your premature newborn is heartbreaking.
Today, you can be a changemaker.
The Running for Premature Babies NeoRESQ Vehicle, affectionately known as R4LPH (Returning All the Little People Home), has been in service since November 2020.
A partnership between RBWH Foundation and Running for Premature Babies, the Neoreturn Service was created to return babies to a hospital closer to home once they are well enough.
This wonderful service travels about 30,0000 kms every year transferring babies from Neonatal Intensive Care Units at Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH) and other Southeast Queensland Hospitals, back to hospitals closer to home.
In addition, NeoRESQ - the Neonatal Retrieval Service for South East Queensland and northern New South Wales, has stabilised and retrieved over 650 babies per year. Combined, NeoRESQ and NeoReturn transfer over 1000 babies per year.
The RBWH Foundation has the goal to raise $20,000 each year to keep this unique service on the road.
