Arrow In this section

Ward 78 is a 32 bedded mixed speciality surgical ward. We care for patients who undergo treatment under the specialities of neurology, neurosurgery, trauma, orthopaedic, spinal and ENT.

The patients we see on the ward could be admitted for anything as short as overnight or stay for a long as a year. We also look after patients that are both acutely unwell and here for neurological rehabilitation.

We, joint together with Alder Hey, are one of 4 centres in the UK that specialise in epilepsy surgery. We also specialise in complex spinal correction surgery and take patients on the ward that are high dependency following spinal surgery.

We also look after patients with a variety of specialist analgesic infusions such as morphine, ketamine, oxycodone, epidurals and nerve blocks and we use Entonox for procedural pain management. The nursing team and doctors will aim to provide a warm and friendly environment in which children, their families and staff feel at ease and treat all patients fairly and with dignity and respect at all times.
