Services for children
Royal Brompton Hospital is an internationally recognised centre for the surgical treatment of neonatal and infant congenital heart disease. Our paediatric work covers respiratory medicine, cardiology, foetal cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery.
An extensive multi-disciplinary team supports the nursing and medical staff.
Babies and children are cared for in our specialist paediatric unit. This offers play and schoolrooms and is specially designed to minimise the unease children – and their parents - might feel when staying in a hospital.
Our children’s intensive care unit is also located here, offering immediate accessibility 24 hours a day. In the recent national assessment of services for children we achieved an ‘excellent’ rating, and our foetal cardiology service has recently been expanded. We have accommodation for parents located on the floor above the children’s ward and in other parts of the hospital.
