The Amazon Childrens Ward

Unique Employment are very proud to support this vital resource at Peterborough Hospital.

The Amazon Ward is a 30 bed general ward which includes an 8 bed Day Surgery Unit and a 2 bed High Dependency Unit. We treat a wide range of patients from those with broken bones to those with life limiting conditions. Our staff includes paediatric consultants, paediatric doctors, nurse specialists, nurses, nursery nurses, healthcare assistants, health play specialists, health play assistants, physiotherapists, pharmacists, the safeguarding team and ward clerks. We have an open visiting policy so patients can have visitors from 8am to 8pm and have one parent/carer stay with them overnight. Facilities for parents/carers include a stocked kitchen, a sitting room and plenty of play facilities and resources for the patients and younger visitors.

We are very fortunate to be well supported by the local community in terms of donations of both money and resources, all of which are always greatly received.
