A-Z services

Paediatric high dependency unit (PHDU)

The paediatric high dependency (PHDU) is located on Acrewood ward and has five beds.

Each bed space has equipment to enable continuous monitoring of children with acute life threatening and long term chronic illness.

The nursing and medical teams provide advanced assessment, stabilisation and high dependency care.

The team works closely with the intensive care unit (ITU), Southampton's paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) and local emergency departments.

Facilities are available for parents and family to be able to rest during what can often be a stressful time.
