Burns referrals

Embrace map

Embrace will assist in the referral of children with burns to regional services and transfer children who require ongoing critical care.

Sheffield Children’s Hospital has a Burns Unit, with intensive care support, and can provide care for children with burns up to 30% total body surface area (TBSA).

Pinderfields Hospital has a burns unit and can provide care for children up to 15% TBSA except for infants under one year when the threshold is 10% TBSA.

Leeds General Infirmary has on-site plastics specialists but no burns services. The intensive care can look after children with minor burns only but suffering with other problems such as smoke inhalation.

Manchester Children’s Hospital has a burns centre and care for the full range of burn injuries including intensive care.

Please refer to the Yorkshire & Humber Burns Pathway document for more details including contact numbers to discuss cases directly with your local service.

Please use the Northern Burn Care Network documentation when caring for, referring and transferring children with burns.
