S4W Children's Neuro Centre
Working in partnership with University Southampton Hospitals NHS Trust, the charity has part-funded the development of a world-class Children’s Neurosciences Centre to replace the previous Children’s Neurosurgery Ward.
Phase 1 of this fabulous new facility provided a six-bed ward (including two high-dependency beds), a single side-room for those at high risk of infection, and the relocated Paediatric Video-Telemetry Suite. The new Centre provides a spacious, bright and welcoming environment for the youngsters who often spend extended periods on the ward, and makes it possible for a parent to stay with their child during what is often a difficult and worrying time. Phase Two of the project (currently underway) is providing a dedicated playroom with sophisticated interactive sensory equipment designed specifically to stimulate children and aid rehabilitation, a parent room and other associated facilities.
We are incredibly proud of this project, and delighted that the Hospital Trust has named it the 'Smile4Wessex Children's Neurosciences Centre. Children, parents and staff are already benefitting from the new facilities, and once Phase 2 of the work is complete, we plan to hold an Open Day so those who wish to can see the unit for themselves.
