Formerly St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Our Services A - Z - Paediatrics and Neonatal Services

About the service

We look after babies, children and young people with a wide range of conditions and illnesses, including those with long term conditions such as asthma, epilepsy or diabetes, those who need urgent or emergency care or require uncomplicated surgery and those who need support in the community with a neuro-disability.

We care for children from birth right through to the age of 16, or sometimes 18 years if they have a long term condition, when we will then help them transition across to adult services in as smooth a way as possible.

We have a highly specialist paediatric team made up of consultants, middle grade and junior doctors, advanced paediatric and neonatal nurse practitioners; supported by a dedicated team of trained children’s, neonatal and community nurses, dietitians, play specialists, health care assistants, hospital teachers, caterers, housekeepers, ward clerks and secretaries who look after our patients in hospital and in the community.  We work very closely with lots of other health professionals such as Child and Adolescent Mental Health Team (CAMHS), Eating Disorder Service, Social Workers, GP's, Community Midwives and Health Visitors to ensure that we provide our patients with the very best care possible.
