The Department of Paediatrics offers treatment and care for children age 0-16 years. We have a wide range of activities, including school. Every year some 3500 youngsters are hospitalised and we see some 13,000 out-patients. Roughly 80 per cent of admissions are for emergency care. We work closely with other specialist personnel at the Hospital, including teaching staff, physio-therapists, clinical nutritionists, clinical social care workers, and the Chaplain. Collaboration across the different disciplines is particularly crucial when working with children.
