Children's services

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
