Paediatric Emergency Medicine Department

We see approximately 52,000 paediatric emergency attendances each year across our two hospital sites. Supported by the on-site Urgent Care Centre, we deal with each traumatic situation with the kindness and compassion that has led the unit to be awarded a Pride in Excellence award in November 2015. We receive patients presenting with wide spectrum of paediatric medical and surgical emergencies as well as major trauma.

Both paediatric emergency departments at King George and Queen’s hospitals have undergone an extensive and innovative program of restructuring in recent years.  Children can be surrounded by the comfort of toys and visual entertainment while they wait to be seen.
