The paediatric community nursing team provide care at home and in the wider community for young people, children, babies and neonates with long-term illnesses.
They look after children with diabetes, respiratory illness, cancer and blood disorders, providing a range of care and treatments including wound care and IV antibiotics.
The team includes neonatal nurses who provide specialist care within the community and an oncology lead nurse who links with principle treatment centres. They also provide advice and support to any family admitted to the paediatric assessment unit or Ward 5 after they have gone home.
