The Children’s and Young People’s team provide a wide range of specialist and general services.
Each year we see more than 8000 patients in our outpatient clinic and about 4000 children in community clinics. We see more than 3000 patients on Ward 25 each year and look after over 300 babies in our Neonatal Unit.
Education and training
We know the importance of our staff having the values, training and skills to work with children, young people and their families. On-going training is vital for all team members, from statutory training such as safeguarding children training to more specialist training such as drug and alcohol awareness, diabetes and pain management.
We recognise the importance of age appropriate services and have recently completed a review of our services to ensure we are achieving the national You’re Welcome quality criteria for young people friendly health services.
