|Space floor houses the Children's Theatre Suite and Rocket Oncology Outpatients (which is not accessible from the Theatre Suite).|
The Children's Theatre Suite is operational in day time hours only.
There are six theatres, four of which are already operational:
Theatre 1 Trauma and Orthopaedic
Theatre 2 Dental / Day Cases / Endoscopy
Theatre 3 CEPOD (non elective emergency surgery) for children
Theatre 5 accommodates the potential additional activity which will come across from other acute paediatric centres.
Theatre 4 Children’s General Surgery
Theatre 6 ENT, Ophthalmology
Theatre 5 requires additional funding to facilitate completion. Once operational, it will be able to accommodate the potential additional activity which will come across from other acute paediatric centres.
The Children's Theatre Suite also provide:
Theatres 3 and 4 are purpose-built integrated theatres which enable the viewing and teaching of complex endoscopy procedures. The viewing screens feed back to the teaching area to enable staff to view specialised procedures without being in theatre itself. This often gives the student a better overhead view and reduces infection control risks.
|Oncology and Haematology Outpatients see children with cancer and non-malignant and haemoglobinopathy disorders. As a department, we treat approximately 75 new children with cancer, leukaemia and brain tumours a year from Wales.|
We are the central point for communications for patients, families and other professionals.
We work with many other teams of doctors and nurses in the hospital. Our team includes nurses (on the unit and in the community), doctors, Data Office staff, LATCH social workers, play specialists, psychologists, a dietician, physiotherapist and a pharmacist.
