The paediatric team provides inpatient and community paediatric services, including services for newly born children.

We have a neo-natal unit with 10 cots (including 3 intensive care/high dependency) for babies born at 27 weeks gestation or more. Our Children’s Unit is a 24 bedded facility, covering both day cases and acute admissions. Our community nursing team provides support to children at home. We seek to provide advice and support in prevention of avoidable admission. Our outpatient clinics accommodate both routine and urgent appointments.
