Opening hours of outpatient clinics

Mo–Fr 8:00–16:00

We care for children and young people with long-term illnesses, taking the whole family into account. As part of the Tyks Stem Cell Transplant Unit, our department is also responsible for autologous stem cell transplants and follow-up care of allogeneic stem cell transplants for children and young people.

We treat patients with cancer and blood diseases, various bleeding disorders and patients receiving blood products. We are also responsible for autologous stem cell transplants for children and adolescents. Patients come to us with a doctor's referral. Our ward erves as an emergency ward as well.

The patients treated in our ward come directly from home for their acute problems. New patients come via the emergency clinic. The department also has a day hospital and three outpatient clinics: a ward display clinic, a paediatric haematology outpatient clinic and a late follow-up outpatient clinic.

We also have physiotherapists, dietitians, a psychiatrist or psychiatric nurses, a hospital chaplain and a teacher working in multiprofessional cooperation.

To improve and develop our work, we welcome feedback on care.  

We are part of the Tyks Department of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine.
