It is the home to a thriving and active Paediatric Neurosciences department with a national reputation. We receive referrals from the local area, and Paediatric teams from North and West Yorkshire, South Tees, Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire, and North Lincolnshire. In addition, our Nationally Commissioned services receive referrals from the wider parts of the UK and Ireland.
Care is provided by an integrated team of specialist Paediatric Neurologists, Paediatric Neurosurgeons, Paediatric Neuro-rehabiliation and Allied Health Professionals
What we do
We work closely with our paediatric neurosurgical colleagues, jointly managing children on our dedicated neurosciences ward in the Clarendon Wing (ward L52), where children are cared for by specially trained nursing staff. We also have close links with the hospital school.
The team includes specialist nurses (for craniofacial surgery, intrathecal baclofen pump insertion, and hydrocephalus) and specialist therapists who are experts in neurorehabilitation. Read more
