From September 2016, inpatient care for children will be centralised at Pinderfields. There will be Children’s Assessment Units at Dewsbury (open from 10am to 10pm daily) and Pinderfields (open 24/7).
Why is this better?
National guidelines tell us it is safer to have care for sick children concentrated into a smaller number of specialist units. These changes will
- Provide round the clock specialist care for children
- Help all children get fast access to the right care for their needs
- Provide local care where possible
