The Burns Unit at Westmead
The Burns Unit at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead is the paediatric component of the NSW Severe Burn Injury Service. It is the referral Unit for all major paediatric burns in New South Wales, also caring for major plastic surgery and general surgical patients. The Hospital admits approximately 200 – 220 children with burns injuries each year, ranging from birth to 16 years old from all over NSW. The philosophy of the Unit is to provide the highest standard of burn injury care to the child and their family, both during and after hospital treatment.
