Specialist staff

Our Childrens' Orthopaedic Therapy Team are all members of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and will help your child mobilise after their surgery.

Visiting Children's Outpatients Department

Paediatric patients who need to attend an appointment are being asked to visit Children's Outpatients with one parent or carer. 

It's important to reduce the number of people through the doors of the hospital, in a bid to protect staff and patients.
