Temporary use of our children’s surgical ward
10 January 2017

There have been a number of media reports about the use of a children’s surgical ward to cope with current demand.

Below is our statement about this:

 “It is important to be clear that children and adult patients are still being treated on separate wards. 

“Like all hospitals, we are currently extremely busy.  We have opened extra surgical beds on one of our children’s wards to care for our younger patients.  This has allowed us to temporarily switch what would routinely be used as a children’s surgical ward to treat only adult patients before and after their operations.”
