Children's Services

The children’s services provide a high quality and responsive service to the needs of children and their families.

Inpatient Care

Children and young people are cared for in a 8-bedded ward.  There is also a Children's Assessment Unit where children are referred to from the Emergency Department, GP surgeries, Community Midwives and Health Visitors.

The children’s ward takes inpatients, and cares for children aged 0 to 16 years. The ward covers a range of specialties that include:

  • paediatric medicine
  • emergency care
  • dermatology - skin conditions 
  • ENT - ear, nose and throat 
  • ophthalmology - eyesight
  • orthopaedics - bones and muscles 
  • surgery

We also have a high dependency cubicle on the ward for very unwell children. Children who require more specialised treatment are generally referred to Sheffield Children’s Hospital or Leeds.

The ward is staffed by trained children’s nurses.

To make the experience of hospital as normal as possible for children, we have a children’s play team.
