There is scope to develop this service as we seek to provide more surgery as day case procedures. We have a busy Chair Dental Service and inpatient community dental work. We also deliver anaesthesia for ophthalmological surgery, endoscopy, and rheumatological procedures. The Trauma service receives approximately 250 children a year who require surgery.

We are involved in the care of acutely ill children and paediatric resuscitation, and this includes neonates

upwards (outside of the Delivery Suite). The Neonatal Service supports in the resuscitation of re-presenting

babies up to 5kg. An interest in paediatric resuscitation would be beneficial.

We have introduced a leadership academy with more opportunities for development so all our leaders support, coach and perform at the highest levels, celebrate the hard work of our staff and recognise the wonderful improvements that are being made each and every day. This is a vital stepping stone to ensure we are equipped for our better future and realising our vision of providing the safest and kindest care for our patients. Leadership is about supporting teams to be the best they can be.
