About Ward 3C
Ward 3C is our ward for complex conditions. The team on the ward provide care for children and young people who need help with their breathing (respiratory), hormones (endocrinology), swelling or pain around their joints (rheumatology) and lots of other conditions.
Patients on the ward range in age from birth up to 18 years of age, each with their own specific set of needs and challenges.
There are a total of 32 beds in Ward 3C separated into colour-coded zones: yellow, blue, green, and orange.
- The yellow, blue and green zones are patient rooms in Ward 3C with ensuite facilities
- The orange zone is made up of a 4-bedded bay with shared bathroom facilities
Ward 3C facilities
On Ward 3C, you’ll find a play area at the very end of the ward in the yellow zone. Patients and siblings are welcome to use this play space but must be supervised by an adult at all times.
Next to the play area is a kitchen area, where parents/carers can make a hot drink, prepare food, or heat up baby milk.
