Paediatric Emergency and Transport
24-hour paediatric emergency services
Children beneﬁt from doctors who are experts in kids, not adults. The same is true when it comes to emergency care. A life-threatening illness can have a devastating effect on the entire family, especially if the patient is a child. Children in these circumstances have unique needs that are signiﬁcantly different from the needs of adult patients
When a child is extremely ill, families would no doubt want the best medical team to be available round the clock to speed up the child’s recovery, minimise pain, as well as provide support and encouragement.
