PANDA Unit

The PANDA Unit (Paediatric Assessment and Decision Area) provides dedicated emergency and short stay care for children less than 16 years of age.

 

This is a consultant-led service within which children can be assessed, investigated, observed and treated within 24 hours and without recourse to inpatient areas. The unit also provides a Tier 2 Paediatric referral service for residents of Salford, or those patients with a Salford GP.

 

Gate-keeping by Paediatric and Emergency Medicine Consultants ensures that over 96% of attendees are currently discharged home direct from the Panda Unit.

 

Early discharge is supported by a dedicated team of children’s community nursing staff that support integrated care between Panda and primary care services.’
