The Whittington Hospital paediatric department provides a comprehensive paediatric service for children and young people from birth to 17 years.

Services provided include a paediatric emergency department, paediatric ambulatory and day care unit, general and specialist outpatient clinics, in-patient care, a high dependency unit and children’s community nursing care.

Surgical services for children over the age of two years include planned general surgery, ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgery and urology. This is undertaken in the day surgery unit. Urgent orthopaedic and general surgery is also undertaken from the day and in-patient wards.

The children's emergency department provides a 24-hour emergency service in a separate area for children with facilities including a large waiting and children’s play area, nappy changing and breast feeding facilities.

Children and young people can access our service through their GP, health visitor, midwife or accident and emergency. We provide a consultant–led service and work closely, when necessary, with paediatric sub-specialists from teaching hospitals throughout London.

We are committed to education and help train students from University College and the Royal Free Medical Schools.
