Whitfield celebrates major milestone of performing over 1,000 children’s surgeries

Whitfield recently celebrated a major milestone of completing over 1,000 surgeries for children.

Whitfield has a dedicated team of specialist children’s nurses, which along with its consultant surgeons and anaesthetists are committed to the provision of this important service.
