The hospital provides comprehensive secondary and tertiary care. There are 18 inpatient beds, 8 surgical day case beds and 6 day assessment beds. Paediatric medical admissions are approximately 2,300 per annum. The Children’s Ward also admits orthopaedic and general surgical cases. There are facilities for the stabilisation of acutely ill patients before their transfer to a designated PICU.

The Resuscitation area is sited between the Paediatric and Adult sections and has a dedicated bed for Paediatric patients.

As paediatric staff see all children, admission rates are kept relatively low at 7-8 %.

Medical problems are generally resolved from A&E with just some needing referral to OPD while most will go back to the care of their GP

One of the Adult A&E Consultants has an interest in Paediatric A&E and spends 2 sessions per week in Paeds A&E.  In addition adult middle grade/Consultant staff assist especially with trauma problems on request and run 2 Paediatric Trauma review clinics per week

Paediatric medical admissions are approximately 2,300 per annum.

The Assessment Unit, sited alongside the inpatient ward is open 8am to 6 pm.  Children needing short admissions/ a period of observation can be admitted there from Paediatric A&E or OPD. It also sees children needing investigations (MRI DMSA etc), short procedures (pH studies, blood transfusions, lung function tests etc)

Respiratory problems seen include children with asthma, chronic respiratory problems and a shared care service for children with cystic fibrosis. Links with respiratory service at a nearby facility have been set up as the most recent post-holder has moved to establish tertiary services there and there are already established links with other Hospital for both Respiratory and Cardiac problems. There is excellent diagnostic support from the paediatric radiologists including U/S, CT and V/Q scanning. Spirometry is available in clinic and on the ward supported by the physiotherapists.
