Additional Information

This page provides service contact information for Paediatric Assessment Units in the four Devon Acute Trusts. Information has been provided for services accessible to healthcare professionals only for advice, guidance and potential referral.

Key Message

  • This information has been provided to minimise Emergency Department referrals for patients where ED will add little value. ED referral is for any life or limb threatening illness or injury.
  • Units have redesigned services and workloads to support social distancing as much as possible for the safety of staff and patients.
