Children's Ward

The Children’s Ward consists of both medical and surgical beds. The ward can provide a total of 32 beds including an emergency room, two high dependency rooms and a treatment room. The ward has 16 individual rooms and four bays. A bed will be allocated according to your child’s age and condition.

The Children’s Ward provides 24-hour inpatient treatment and daycase care. It has been specifically designed to ensure all children and young people’s needs are catered for.

We offer a range of facilities for all children and their families. We have a playroom, play area and a dedicated adolescent room where young people can access an excellent range of age appropriate activities.

The Children’s Ward also has a dedicated family room where families can relax in a quiet environment.

We have open visiting hours for parent and family members. An adult must accompany all visitors under the age of 16 years.


Your child’s safety is paramount. As such we operate an electronic door opening system in order to identify ward visitors.

To ensure everyone’s safety, we ask visitors to not allow people to follow you in when you are entering the ward. All members of Trust staff wear identity badges, which should be always visible.
