We have other specialist children’s services to support your child after anaesthesia – a Paediatric Intensive Care Unit and a High Dependency unit, specialist children’s physiotherapists, pharmacists, play therapists and many others.
We have a Children’s Pain team offering a wide range of ways of controlling pain. This is staffed by expert nurses. There are tried and tested guidelines for assessing pain and treating it appropriately and safely. Both of the pain nurses are trained and certified to prescribe drugs for pain and to treat side effects. The ward nurses are trained in pain assessment and in pain management too.
