Paediatric/Children’s Services

The service aims to provide high quality care to meet the needs of the children, young people and their families across the area.

The main wards are based at Sandwell Hospital, but we also have services at City Hospital, including the Children’s Emergency Care Unit (CECU) and outpatient clinics in the Birmingham Treatment Centre and community locations. We provide tailored services for a wide range of specialties lead by a team of specialists.

To keep up to date with all relevant advice and treatments for a wide range of conditions please see our patient information page which provides links to multiple information leaflets.

We treat children aged from 0-16 years. We also care for some young people aged over 16 years who have needs better met in a paediatric environment.

We have inpatient and outpatient facilities and community teams to safely support our children and families.

These services range from assessments, inpatient stays, adolescent services and high dependency (ITU) care.  There are dedicated facilities to allow parents to stay with their child during their hospital admission.
