CHILD HEALTH DEPARTMENT

The Child Health Service is provided to most of County Durham and Darlington, covering a child population (0-16 years) of approximately 95,000.

These are currently provided from two hospitals: University Hospital of North Durham (UHND) and Darlington Memorial Hospital (DMH) with some day surgery and investigations at BAH. A full range of outpatient services continue at UHND, DMH and BAH in addition to selected clinics at the smaller hospitals. The Child Health Service is integrated across County Durham and Darlington, but for acute duties is currently subdivided into two teams, based at DMH, UHND.

'Every aspect of my emergency care was dealt with quickly, efficiently and professionally with full explanations and compassion from all staff involved'.
