What is the age range for paediatrics?

Children, by law, are those up to the age of 18. However, paediatricians (doctors specialising in the treatment of children) usually see patients up the age of 16. From the age of 16, patients are usually cared for by “adult” doctors, except in certain specialist cases. This happens all across the United Kingdom and not just in Hull.

In the ED in Hull, patients aged 16 or 17 can choose to be seen in either a children’s area or one of the adult areas. This choice should be made by the young person and their family depending on whether they see themselves as a child or as an adult.

Sometimes, we may ask patients aged 16 or 17 to go to an adult area if we feel this is more appropriate. On rare occasions, we may also ask patients under 16 to go to an adult area for the same reason. They will be cared for there by a children’s nurse.

Hospitalization is a stressful and threatening experience, which can be emotionally devastating to children. Hospital play interventions have been widely used to prepare children for invasive medical procedures and hospitalization. Nevertheless, there is an imperative need for rigorous empirical scrutiny of the effectiveness of hospital play interventions using play activities to ease the psychological burden of hospitalized children.
