Our impact Environment Burn centre appeal Our Burns Centre treats children who have suffered all types of burn injuries. The purpose-built centre opened in February 2008, and treats babies, children and young people up to the age of 16 from the Midlands, Thames Valley, South Wales and South West England, and is the largest unit of its kind in Europe. Facilities and staff Our Burns Centre boasts an out-patients area for children with minor injuries and those who need to return to have their dressings changed. We also offer an outpatient counselling service to support recovery. The Centre has its own operating theatre; a high dependency unit and a bright spacious playroom. Specialist equipment available to our patients includes a state-of-the-art Laser Doppler which is able to measure how deeply a burn has penetrated the skin without causing pain or discomfort.
