Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead has announced some changes to the care for children with the most severe burns.
From the 1st August the very small number of children who are so badly burned that they need inpatient care, will be taken to the specialist burns centres at St Andrew’s Burn Centre in Chelmsford or to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London.
For 98% of children experiencing a burn, care will remain at the Queen Victoria Hospital only. The clinically-led decision means that 2 % of children who are so badly burned that they need to stay in overnight will receive their inpatient care in a hospital that also has paediatric intensive care.
