Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust is one of only four dedicated children’s hospital trusts in the UK and provides integrated healthcare for children and young people, including community and mental health care as well as acute and specialist services.
We see children from 0-16 in most cases and in some cases up to 18.
We provide a full range of services for residents of Sheffield and South Yorkshire as well as specialised services for patients from further afield.
Caring for patients across the UK
Demand for our services is growing and we are increasingly delivering healthcare to patients over a wider geographical area as our reputation for providing outstanding specialist care grows.
We have some of the best medical and surgical services for children in the country.
In 2016/17 169,800 patients came to the hospital as inpatients or outpatients. A further 56,800 children attended A&E.
