Our work is wide ranging and we are well respected both locally and as a regional specialist treatment centre. We provide excellent care across Medical and Surgical specialities. Our ethos of child centred care and multi-professional collaboration drives our service, alongside a commitment to family focused teamwork. We believe in supporting our patients, their families and our staff, and we offer a diverse range of dedicated paediatric psycho-social and clinical support services.

Opportunities available include permanent positions on our inpatient and outpatient areas. These include a general paediatric ward, comprising of both elective and emergency admissions for children aged 0-16, a medical and surgical ward for children aged 0-3 years and a Regional Paediatric Oncology and Haematology ward for children aged 0-16, which also has a separate dedicated outpatient facility. Further areas include a unit for babies under the age of 1 year with general medical and surgical requirements. This unit enhances the patient pathways between NICU/SCBU and the children’s wards. We also have a dedicated NICU which is a regional level 3 unit. PICU is a regional unit that covers all paediatric specialities requiring intensive or high dependency care from 0-16 years.

This ward predominantly comprises both elective and emergency admissions, with either medical or surgical conditions. It also undertakes rapid referral and pre admission clinics and is the theatre admissions unit for the Paediatric Service. We also have a dedicated children’s outpatient department for all children aged 0-16 years.
