Piam Brown children's cancer ward
Piam Brown is the Wessex regional children’s cancer ward.
Children come from Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, Surrey, Sussex, the Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands to receive care on our unit.
Piam Brown ward caters for children with all types of cancer from birth to 16 years old, so demand on our resources is huge.
Every year we care for around 120 new patients.
Neonatal intensive care unit
Our unit has been specially designed as a bright, welcoming and spacious environment for babies and their families.
As one of the largest neonatal units in the country, we treat around 900 babies a year, from across the south and the Channel Islands, specialising in surgery and cardiac services.
Robbie’s Rehab was set-up in memory of 10-year-old patient Robbie Keville who was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour at the age of eight.
This fund provides specialist medical professionals to help children with brain tumours for children who need specialist rehabilitation during and following their treatment for cancer.
The Lahna Appeal
When Natasha and Lance Beatty lost their five-month-old daughter Lahna Tula, they were determined to ensure a lasting legacy for her.
So, in 2009, they launched the Lahna Appeal in her memory to fund both pioneering and routine equipment for Southampton Children’s Hospital.
To date, the family have raised over £100,000!
