The hospital first opened on 15 November 1876 as a children's infirmary in Brightmore House, on Brook Hill in Sheffield.[1] Two years later it moved to its current site on Western Bank where it was accommodated in a pair of semi-detached houses.[1] By the mid 1890s it was decided that the two old house were inadequate and should be pulled down and replaced. A new building on Brook Hill was opened in 1903, designed by the architect John Dodsley Webster.[2] The first X-ray machine and electric lights arrived in 1907 and a new operating theatre and electric radiators were installed in the 1920s.[1] Two new wards were completed in 1927, a baby ward was opened in the 1930s and a second operating theatre was built in the 1950s.[1] The accident and emergency department was extended in the 1970s and services were transferred from the Northern General Hospital in the 1990s.[1]

During the 1990s it was featured in the BBC Television series Children's Hospital.[3]

Local football club Sheffield Wednesday donated their shirt sponsorship to Sheffield Children's Hospital and the associated Children's Hospital Charity for the 2009–10 and 2010–11 seasons.[4]

A new wing, built at a cost of £40 million, was completed in 2018.[5] The new wing provides a new hospital main entrance, outpatients consulting suites, specialist diagnostic and treatment areas, and three new wards.[6] The new wing was officially opened by Prince Harry in July 2019.[7]


The Sheffield Children's Clinical Research Facility (CCRF) opened in 2008 as the first dedicated CCRF in the UK. Research at Sheffield Children's NHS Foundation Trust spans a range of specialities including bone disease, genetics, respiratory disease, neurology, radiology, cancer and blood diseases, endocrinology and mental health.[8] In 2012 the hospital received over £1 million in grants for research into the treatment of bronchiolitis, the use of vibration plate therapy to prevent fractures in children, and the development of bone scanning to replace X-rays in the study of bones in children.[8]
