What We Do

The Trust provides a dedicated children’s accident and emergency department that is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week located in Ormskirk Hospital where children under the age of 16 are seen.

The department is staffed by registered children's nurses, emergency nurse practitioners and children's doctors. All children brought in are seen directly by a doctor and supervision is given by consultants from both paediatric and emergency medicine backgrounds.

For emergency surgery and trauma, they are assessed and stabilised then sent primarily to intensive care units via the North West and North Wales Transport Service.

Referrals can be made to the Community Children's Nursing Outreach Team to provide support and care in the home environment if appropriate.

There are weekly ambulatory and medical review clinics by consultant paediatricians to review patients rapidly that are seen in the emergency department. The Department has a two-bedded bedded resuscitation area with resuscitation equipment.
