Woodlands Ward is a general paediatric (children’s) ward, treating infants, children, and adolescents ranging in age from one day to 16 years old.

Paediatric nursing is a specialised area with a family-centred care focus and a multidisciplinary approach.

We provide services in general paediatrics, ENT (ear, nose and throat) surgery, orthopaedic care and surgery, general surgery, maxillo-facial and dental surgery, and urology.

We want to make you feel as comfortable as possible when you visit our wards, and all our staff aim to adhere to our values of Passionate, Respectful, and Responsible. Find out more information about our Vision and Values.
