The London Children’s Surgery Group
The London Children’s Surgery Group was founded in 2012 by a group of the UK’s leading Specialist Neonatal and Paediatric Surgeons all of whom hold consultant NHS posts at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Patients are looked after at The Portland Hospital or Great Ormond Street Hospital for both outpatient and inpatient care.
They are supported at both hospitals by a wider team of healthcare specialists including radiologists, urologists, respiratory specialists, dieticians, gastroenterologists and nurses to provide a multi-disciplinary approach in order to ensure a seamless patient journey for the child.
The Portland Hospital specifically has three state of the art theatres and the paediatric unit is equipped with advanced medical technology and facilities. Should the need arise a 7-bedded Paediatric intensive Care Unit, 4-bedded Neonatal intensive Care Unit, and a 3-bedded Special Care Baby Unit are available with dedicated staff assigned the children under their care.
The paediatric wards offer a comfortable, calm and reassuring ‘home from home’ environment to accommodate any length of stay with en-suite rooms, which can also accommodate one, or both parents, to stay with their child overnight.
There is also a designated paediatric day care unit with individual en-suite rooms for admissions not requiring an overnight stay.
