We have a day unit at the University Hospital of North Tees and the University Hospital of Hartlepool.

University Hospital of North Tees

The 10 bed day unit at the University Hospital of North Tees is next to the ward. Our full paediatric team provide care to those who have been referred to us by accident and emergency, GPs, nurse practitioners, midwives and health visitors.

We also look after children and young people who might need:

  • minor surgery
  • immunisations
  • blood tests
  • investigations and procedures

The unit is open between 8am and 9pm Monday to Friday.

At the University Hospital of Hartlepool we have a nurse led paediatric day unit. We care for children and young people who have been referred to us by their GP or by a midwife. All referrals are triaged by the nurse practitioner on call to decide where we care for your child.

We also look after children and young people who need:

  • a review
  • planned surgery
  • blood tests
  • investigations and procedures

We have been awarded the national You’re Welcome accreditation from the Department of Health which demonstrates that we are providing a service to their high standards.
