Children’s and Young Peoples Outpatients Department
On the Children’s and Young Peoples Outpatients Department (CYPOD) we deliver a variety of services for Children and Young People aged 0-18 years. We’re a small team of Nurses and Healthcare Assistants who work closely with our colleagues across the floor to help provide the best care for your child. It is here that the Consultants, Doctors, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, or Nurses will see your child in clinic if they have an outpatient appointment booked. They see children for a whole range of conditions including but not limited to:
- Faltering Growth
- General Medicine
- Plastic Surgery
- Visiting Clinics from Bristol & Southampton
As well as these clinic we also run a phlebotomy service (booked appointments only), we cannulate children prior to scans, give vaccinations, carry out sweat tests for adults and children, change dressings, carry out food/drug challenges and allergy testing. We work closely with the play team who are always on hand to help and support you and your child through any procedures or tests they have to have.
There is a small play area on CYPOD as well as an interactive “magic mirror” and our very popular fish tank which all help to keep your little ones entertained while you wait for your appointment.
