Meet our specialist children's nurses

Our children’s nurses understand both the importance to parents and children of being ‘listened to’ and the difference that delivering the appropriate clinical care to children in an environment which is tailored for children can make.

We fully appreciate that bringing your child into hospital can be an anxious time for the whole family which is why we offer parents and carers the opportunity for children to visit the hospital in advance of their operation so that they are familiar with the hospital environment and can meet the nurses who will be looking after them.
