Your child's medical team

During your child’s stay, a highly trained team of nursing specialists will take care of your child alongside your consultant in our Skyline children's ward.

They will provide first-rate medical care in a calm, comfortable environment and answer any questions you may have.

Your child's consultant

Your child’s consultant will lead their treatment and he or she will tell hospital staff about any tests or treatment needed.

If your child has any tests done, the consultant will discuss the results with you.
