The children and young people’s surgical day unit nurses are here to look after you and your family throughout your theatre journey.
We have a mixture of children’s nurses and recovery nurses who will look after you throughout the day.
We also have healthcare assistants who help the nursing team look after you.
What we do
The unit cares for children who require planned and emergency day surgery.
Children and young people must be four months old to 19 years old and expected to be able to go home on the day of their operation.
We provide care and support to all our patients and their family members.
Our children and young people’s recovery unit is also based here and this is where you will wake up after your procedure.
We also care for children from other wards such as ward 21, ward 22 and the children and young people’s critical care unit after their operations.
