Interhospital transport of sick newborn infants is dangerous, but the risk of adverse events can be reduced, when transport is being performed by trained neonatal retrieval teams. In this review, we describe the current organisation of neonatal retrieval service in Denmark. The services are based at the neonatal intensive care units of the four university hospitals. Improved cooperation and harmonisation of operations between the teams is needed, as this is a prerequisite for the development of a national clinical consensus guideline and national quality metrics enabling benchmarking both within Denmark and abroad.
