People from remote areas in Scotland whose children are born prematurely can find it hard to come and visit them. The Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow, where many of these babies begin their lives, has been trialling the use of video cameras which allow parents to keep up-to-date with their child’s progress from afar. The videos are made by a company called vCreate and the trial has been running for six or seven weeks on two babies. So far the parents have had a very positive response.
