About us

Baby Beat was established in 1987 by a group of midwives and a consultant obstetrician to provide additional foetal monitoring equipment for the growing maternity unit at the old Royal Preston Infirmary. Together they launched a fundraising appeal to raise money for the new equipment. And so Baby Beat began. 

Premature Baby

If you have a fundraising idea then we would love to hear from you! Please give our charity team a call on 01772 524414 or email babybeatuk@lthtr.nhs.uk

Baby Beat is part of the Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Charity. It funds specialist equipment, patient services and comforts, clinical care, local research, additional training and staff welfare projects so that the maternity and gynaecology teams can offer the best possible outcomes for babies and mums in the Central Lancashire and Chorley area. With Baby Beats support, NICU also continues to provide exceptional care for premature and sick babies and their families from across Lancashire and South Cumbria.

Everything Baby Beat funds is additional and complementary to what the NHS provides and makes a real difference to families from across Lancashire and South Cumbria when they need it the most.

With your support we can ensure that the mums and babies at our Trust have access to the very best care, treatment and facilities.
