The Neonatal Network ODN

Neonatal Operational Delivery Networks (ODNs) are there to make sure that all babies and their families receive high quality care which is fair and accessible for all.

Each ODN is made up of a group of neonatal units within a certain area and allows the units in it to work together and share knowledge and skills.


By working together, hospitals can provide a streamlined service for babies and their families in a hospital most suited to their needs and as close to home as possible.
