Ward L52

Our dedicated Paediatric Neurosciences Ward in the Clarendon Wing. Ward L52 is a regional specialist unit, caring for children and young people requiring neurosurgical and neurological care and expertise. It is staffed by qualified Paediatric nurses, doctors, and support workers with years of experience and specialist knowledge. Other Paediatric healthcare professionals work within the multidisciplinary team on L52, and your child may be referred to, or visited by, these professionals during their stay with us.

Multidisciplinary care is provided for all children on the ward – delivered by the paediatric neurology, paediatric neurosurgery and paediatric neuro-rehabilitation consultants and specialist allied health professionals. Children having neurosurgery are cared for as joint patients with the paediatric neurosurgeon and paediatric neurologist, providing integrated shared care. Children also attend Neuro-rehabilitation sessions in the therapy room on ward L52 and/or in the hydrotherapy pool in the physiotherapy department.
