We are the only specialist children’s trust in the country that provides care for children and young people across community, acute specialist settings and mental health services from community to highly specialist in-patient care. The Trust offers a comprehensive approach to supporting children and families, with the aim to be at the forefront of best practice in delivering high quality and integrated care to children and young people.
Services are provided in a number of different locations. The majority of acute care is provided at the Sheffield Children’s Hospital which is situated on Western Bank, a central location in the city. It is in close proximity to Sheffield’s universities and many of the facilities offered by Sheffield Teaching Hospitals. Sheffield Children’s community and mental health services are provided from a number of locations.
The Ryegate Children’s Centre is situated a mile away from Sheffield Children’s Hospital, in the south west of the city and provides a focus for the delivery of services to children with disabilities, including those with complex neuro-disability. Mental health and community services are provided from sites across the city of Sheffield, including Flockton House, Centenary House and the Becton Centre for Children and Young People.
Our services extend to care delivered directly in the home, with our Helena Nursing Team providing 24 hour respite care, advice, specialist nursing, and palliative care to children with complex neurological disabilities within their own homes.
We also host Embrace, an accredited critical care transport service based in Barnsley.
