Ward Information

Neonatal Unit-

Every parent hopes that their baby will be born healthy but for some families it will be necessary for their newborn to be admitted to NICU for stabilisation and care. The main reasons that babies need to be admitted to NICU include being born too early, being born too small or being born sick. Some parents may be aware that their baby will require NICU admission before their baby is born but for many families, their baby’s admission to NICU is unexpected and can be very upsetting

NICU is close to Delivery Suite and Theatres to make transfer of babies requiring extra care, quick and easy. We have 20 cots in addition to a range of facilities, to make the time that parents spend on NICU a little easier. For example, a family rest room is available at all times and three family room facilities for families to use prior to going home with their baby.

Paediatric Amazon Ward-

The ward provides a comprehensive paediatric service both for elective and emergency care for all children up to the age of 16.

We provide specialist orthopaedic surgery, paediatric urology and ENT surgery and some specialist maxillo-facial surgery. Children with chronic disease continue to receive paediatric care beyond the age of 16 should this be required.

The paediatric High Dependency Unit (HDU) facility is used to care for very sick children.

We offer a high standard of care to all children and their families, ensuring we provide the necessary amenities for children and families with complex needs. We have on the ward a hoist enabling patients to be transferred from bed to chairs or to the bath, ensuring safety of the patient and staff members. We have a bath that is height adjustable to allow easy accessibility for patients, also showers with seating and wheelchair access, and disabled toilets.There are several wheelchairs, two are specifically designed for younger children, available on the ward to aid in mobility.

Our staff

The service is staffed by a team of experienced registered sick children’s nurses who are supported by a number of health-care support workers.  There is a specialist hospital play team, specialist dieticians and specialist physiotherapists. The medical team is led by an experienced group of Consultant Paediatricians who have diverse skills and expertise.

Mobile phones are allowed to be used on Amazon ward; however we do ask that you respect children and their families in neighbouring areas as calls can disturb patients and their families.

Play facilities

There is a variety of child-friendly facilities on the ward; we have a play room, soft play room, and sensory room which provide stimulation and normalisation for children while in hospital. These areas provide age appropriate activities for children aged 0-11 years, varying from toddler toys, art and craft to board games and lots more.

The ‘den’ (teenagers room) provides teenagers with age appropriate equipment in a separate area to the younger children; this includes PlayStation 2, X-box and board games. The room is a space for teenagers to relax in and socialise with other children of the same age.
