Children's services (Starlight)
The Starlight Children’s Unit cares for children up to the age of 16. All care is delivered by staff trained to look after children; we practice family-centred care, which takes into consideration each families’ needs.
The unit provides around the clock access for urgent GP referrals and children-only outpatient clinics. Many emergency admissions come via our Children’s Emergency Assessment (CEA) unit where children may be observed for a short while or have necessary investigations done before being either discharged home or admitted to the Starlight children’s ward.
