Woodlands Ward is a general Paediatric ward with 22 beds including one high dependency room and a children’s assessment unit.

SCBU has 7 cots and takes babies from 32 weeks gestation. It is a small friendly unit that specialises in family centred care. We have “Baby Friendly” accreditation for our support given to breastfeeding mothers and all our SCBU staff nurses are encouraged to pursue the neonatal degree course (one academic year) after a period of around 2 years preceptorship.
