New Cross Hospital

The Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust

New Cross Hospital is a teaching hospital located in Wolverhampton and serving a total population about 400,000 in the Black Country area, with a large Paediatric Cystic Fibrosis network clinic, currently seeing 43 patients, and an adult CF clinic which sees around 40 patients. It is hoped that in the future New Cross will have an adult CF centre.

The hospital has a large general paediatric department, seeing 13,000 paediatric outpatients per year, and a children’s ward with 26 beds and a paediatric assessment unit with 14 beds, including some cubicles with ensuite facilities.   We are able to undertake IV antibiotic treatment for children, both as inpatients and as outpatients. We are able to see newly diagnosed babies, and carry out sweat tests. We have facilities to carry out annual reviews of our CF patients.

We are proud of our infection control performance and of the parent and patient feedback we received at the CF peer review in 2014.

A new consultant, Dr Sally Edwards, has recently been appointed to care for the CF children at New Cross. We have a full time CF nurse specialist, a part time physiotherapist and a part time dietician.
