About the Children's Ward

Our Children’s Ward offers up to 24 beds with a friendly, specialised Paediatric team. We care for children from age 0 to their 16th Birthday with general medical, general surgical and orthopaedic needs.

We have a purpose made paediatric friendly treatment room, a play room for children and a Child Life Therapist available for our inpatients.

Our services also extend to our Paediatric Ambulatory Short Stay Unit (PASS) which consists of a child friendly environment for those children requiring a short stay for observation.

The Paediatric Division provides a number of specialised clinics including:

  • Preadmission Clinic – designed to prepare children for booked elective surgery
  • PARC (Paediatric Acute Review Clinic) – designed to allow discharge from Emergency and/or the Children’s ward and follow up the next day within this service
