Burns Surgery (children)
The Burns Unit at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital is the only hospital service in London recognised by the South East of England Burns Network for the treatment of significant burns in children.
All children are seen by a burns specialist, as well as relevant members of the paediatric team. Our four-bedded children’s facility in the main Burns Unit is staffed by specialist burns nurses or nurses who are qualified in both burns and paediatrics.
The burns service includes a walk-in burns clinic and two specialist burns dressings clinics (one located at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, and the other at Queen Mary’s Hospital), all of which are supported by home visits by a senior burns sister for children unable to attend. We also offer a consultant-led service for burns scars and a telephone advice service on burns.
