The Paediatric Assessment Unit (PAU) accepts referrals from GPs, midwives and the Emergency Department for children who need acute assessment and observation by Paediatrics. It is open 8am – 10pm 7 days a week, providing unwell babies and children with access to review by Senior Paediatricians. PAU is situated in Dolphin Ward but children who seem very unwell may be asked to attend the Emergency Department first where Paediatrics will see and initiate urgent treatment as appropriate.
