Worcestershire Royal Hospital

Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust

The Worcestershire children’s and young people’s shared care cystic fibrosis service is located over two hospital sites. We currently share care with Birmingham Children’s Hospital for 35 patients. Outpatient clinics are held at Worcestershire Royal Hospital, Worcester and the Alexandra Hospital, Redditch. Inpatient facilities are provided on Riverbank Ward at Worcestershire Royal Hospital. This is a 35 bedded paediatric ward with 11 ensuite cubicles.

All children and young people have indefinite open access to Riverbank ward. Open Access is a way of providing advice and support outside of working hours or when a member of the CF team is not available. If you need advice regarding your child’s condition, you can telephone Riverbank ward directly on 01905 760588 and ask to speak to the nurse in charge or middle grade doctor. Arrangements can then be made for you to attend the ward or children’s clinic to be reviewed if necessary.
