Burns Unit

The Burns Unit at The Children's Hospital at Westmead is the paediatric component of the NSW Severe Burn Injury Service. It is the referral Unit for all major paediatric burns in New South Wales.

The philosophy of the Unit is to provide the highest standard of burn injury care to the child and their family, both during and after hospital treatment. It also includes the new the Children's Hospital Burns Research Institute which seeks to build upon our established clinical track record and introduce an exciting new element - laboratory-based burns research.
