A number of transport strikes are due to take place this December. If you or your child has an appointment at one of our hospitals or community centres, please plan ahead and do all you can to attend. If you need to cancel your appointment, please contact your clinical team.

Nurses' strike action will take place on 15 and 20 December. Our emergency and time critical services will be open. We'll let you know if your appointment is affected.

Stroke service

Our stroke service gives advice and treatment to children affected by stroke in infancy, childhood or in their teenage years. A stroke happens when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off.

We offer a range of advice and care on medical treatment and rehabilitation depending on each child’s needs. We work closely with families to make sure that you have the information you need, and access to appropriate help and support in your local community.

The service is run by doctors and therapists who have expert knowledge of stroke care. We also work closely with local teams in the community and in other hospitals to support your child’s care.
