Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust offer access to Shannon Ward PICU services on a spot purchase basis where we have availability. We require a funding agreement to be agreed with referrers prior to admission.

Our beds are competitively priced and we aim to respond to a telephone request for an admission within an hour of receiving the call. Please get in touch with the team (contact details on the right of the page) if you are interested or would like further information.

The daily rate includes the cost of all professional staff including doctors, nurses and therapy team, inpatient admission and all meals and therapies used in the delivery of the service.
