Welcome to Alice Ward.

Alice ward is the children's orthopaedic surgery and rehabilitation ward. We have 16 beds/cots on our ward and routinely admit children and young people between the ages of 0-17 years.

The ward team will do our best to ensure that all the care needs of you and your family are met and that you are as comfortable as possible during your stay. We aim to explain everything, but if there is anything you do not understand or are worried about, please ask.
