Our dedicated children’s accident and emergency department (A&E) is located at St Mary’s Hospital. Children attending the department are seen by paediatricians, A&E doctors, emergency nurse practitioners and GPs in a purpose-built, child-friendly environment. The department is separated from but works alongside our adult emergency department.

St Mary's is the major trauma centre for north west London and all children in this region that have significant injuries are transported to us for specialist care.

We are actively involved in research in paediatric emergency medicine, producing numerous publications and contributing to multi-centre studies. We are a member of PERUKI, the paediatric emergency research of UK and Ireland, and actively contributing to the development of the specialty of paediatric emergency medicine.

Clinical trials

We are actively involved in many research projects and contribute to national studies and patients are recruited as appropriate to studies, with full information given and consent sought.


We welcome elective students to the department, please contact the electives office at Imperial College for more information.
