Accident And Emergency - Sheffield Children's Hospital Nhs Foundation Trust
Our doctors and nurses specialise in the resuscitation and treatment of seriously injured or ill children and we are a designated Major Trauma Centre for children. On arriving at the Emergency Department, children are booked in by our reception staff. Children are then evaluated by our triage nurse, who will assess your child's condition and decide on the urgency of their condition. Children are then assessed by doctors or emergency nurse practitioners in order of medical priority. Waiting times can be significant in the late evenings and at weekends and it is worth bearing this in mind when you make choices about where to seek healthcare advice. Most children are discharged home after assessment in the ED. Sometimes we need to admit children to a ward for ongoing treatment and sometimes we arrange clinic appointments, such as fracture clinic or eye clinic.
