University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust

Children's neurosurgery

Our unit serves patients from across the South, covering around three million people. We also see patients from further afield. We have our own facility, G2 children's neurosurgery, on child health G level.

We are one of the few hospitals that can treat all patients from birth to old age on the same site.

We also have a clinical nurse specialist for epilepsy neurosurgery, looking after patients who have epilepsy and a vagal nerve stimulator inserted.

Families are an important part of the team, and you are encouraged to be present as much as you wish during your child's stay. We try to make the stay on our ward as happy and stress free as possible.
