Ward 4B has a total of 32 beds, separated into colour-coded zones: yellow, blue, green, and orange.

- The orange zone is made up of a 4-bedded bay with shared bathroom facilities
Ward 4B facilities
There are two play areas in Ward 4B, one in the green zone and another in the yellow zone. In the yellow zone, there is also a space for teenagers to relax. At the end of the ward, there is a play deck at the very end of the ward. Patients and siblings are welcome to use these areas but must be supervised by an adult.
The ward has a school room which is a neuro-educational rehabilitation and assessment unit. This unit is for patients who have suffered a moderate or severe head or brain injury. Patients are usually referred to the classroom by their consultant for an educational assessment of the brain injury and as part of their rehabilitation.
Physiotherapists will treat your child as required in the Therapy Room. Facilities are available for one parent/carer to sleep at your child’s bedside.
