Support

BIBS funds a professional Family Support Practitioner that runs drop-in sessions three times a week. We also operate a Parent Support evening once a week run by volunteer former Buscot parents.

Facilities

BIBS manages and refurbishes parent and family facilities on the ward such as a family lounge and overnight accomodation.

Awareness

BIBS aims to raise awareness of the issues faced by parents and babies on the unit. We work with the hospital and other organisations to make this most stressful of journeys as smooth as possible.

Equipment

BIBS fundraises to help supply the latest technology and equipment that will aid in the care and development of babies on Buscot Ward.

Calling upon BIBS supporters, Buscot families and staff (past and present) to join BIBS (Babies in Buscot Support) in wishing Lead Neonatal Sister, Gina Outram, all the very best.

Sadly Gina leaves her role on Buscot Ward at the RBH tomorrow, but her skills and experience will be retained as she embarks on a new role as Neonatal Network Manager for the Thames Valley & Wessex region where she is looking forward to helping babies receive the best possible care throughout the region.

Gina has been a Neonatal Nurse for over 30 years, starting on Buscot ward in 1983, followed by 10 years managing the Neonatal Unit in Frimley Park Hospital, then back to Buscot ward again in July 2012. With around 600 babies per year passing through Buscot's care we know her work will have touched so many families.

Gina says, "I am always full of admiration for parents of sick and preterm infants, your love for your babies and your resilience in coping with such a stressful time never ceases to amaze me. I also consider myself to be very lucky to be in such a priveledged position in being able to help someone at the very beginning of thier life and seeing them go onto to become amazing human beings."

Thank you for all you have done for Buscot families Gina, and good luck when you start your new role!

In just over 24 hours our very own #LondonMarathon runner, Rachel will be taking on her biggest challenge to date.

After undergoing major spinal surgery at the beginning of 2017, Rachel has been training hard through the cold winter months (including the 2 Beasts from the East) to be ready for Sunday morning!

Rachel and her family had first hand experience of Buscot ward when their son, Alex, was born 10 weeks early in 2006. He spent a total of 6 weeks on Buscot and the first week and half being helped with his breathing on a ventilator and later on C-paps. Rachel has spoken about her struggle of having to leave Alex in the hospital when he was so poorly and said BIBS played a major part in helping her get through those tough weeks.

Alex is now a healthy 11 year old and Rachel says “I can’t wait to hold him tight after crossing the line! Every single step is for you Alex! You and every other other Buscot Graduate".

We wish Rachel all the luck for Sunday morning and everyone here at BIBS HQ will be thinking of her and keeping an eye out for a BIBS vest on TV!
