John Radcliffe Hospital

The Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) looks after children with long-term respiratory, cardiology and neurology problems, as well as acute paediatric admissions. They offer a full range of intensive care therapies, allowing them to provide specialist care to patients.

PICU is staffed by a multidisciplinary team which includes:

  • Paediatricians
  • Anaesthetists
  • Intensive care nurses
  • Physiotherapists
  • Dietitians.

Admissions to PICU are always a very stressful time for parents and close relatives: staff are keen to support the family as a whole. Colleagues in Social Services and Clinical Psychology also provide them with valuable support.

Birmingham Craniofacial Unit, Birmingham Children’s Hospital

The Birmingham Craniofacial Unit based at Birmingham Children’s Hospital is one of four nationally designated Craniofacial centres.

It manages patients with abnormalities of the skull and face.

A multidisciplinary team (one which has experts from more than one area) carries out this complex surgery, led by a plastic surgeon , a neurosurgeon and a maxillofacial surgeon supported by registrars and many other staff from departments such as speech and language therapy, medical genetics, and ophthalmology.


For a disabled child, the right kind of wheelchair is more than just a set of wheels. It can be the key to unlocking a young person’s potential. That’s why Whizz-Kidz provides a range of mobility equipment for children and young people with a physical disability to give them independence at home, at school, or at play.

We hope to raise enough to purchase at least one chair for this charity.
