The Paediatric department within the trust operates in 2 hospitals. Our inpatient care is situated at Princess Royal Hospital, Telford with a Medical day case unit at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, Shrewsbury. Both sites operate outpatient clinics in addition to outreach clinics in nearby community hospitals. The Paediatric department supports not only the single largest Paediatric ward for the County – 36 beds, with specialist high-dependency and oncology areas, but also a Children’s Assessment/Short-Stay 8-bedded unit at the Princess Royal Hospital and a Paediatric Medical Day case Unit at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital which are designed to facilitate Hospital admission avoidance.

There are separate Neonatal and Paediatric consultant rotas. The post holder will not be covering the neonatal unit.
