One Paediatrics… The Story So Far

It has been a year since the birth of the Children and Young Person’s service at One Ashford Hospital, so we’re keen to meet up with the paediatric lead nurse Femi Omowo to gather his thoughts.

“It has been a very exciting year for us and in our first year alone, we have treated over 800 children at the hospital.

We are proud to be able to offer an exceptional and unique service to the local community.  Prior to this, children were having to travel into London to access various services as there was very little, if any facilities available who could treat children.

We are proud to be able to offer a vast range of services which are now readily available on your doorstep, providing fast access to treatment. This gives parents peace of mind who need to quickly see a specialist.  One Ashford has an exceptional range of paediatric Consultants and it is a pleasure to work alongside them.

“The team I lead work exceptionally hard to offer a 5* service to both the children and parents. They work incredibly hard and continuously strive to improve the service we currently provide. This is evident in the positive feedback that we regularly receive.

“Excellent staff, good support, clean and friendly”

“Couldn’t improve, great job by all”

“Staff all very helpful, room was lovely, couldn’t have asked for a better stay.”
