Information for patients

On arrival to the ward a member of staff will either take you to your allocated bed space or show you to our waiting room / play room if your child’s procedure is later in the day. If your child needs to stay overnight we have facilities for one parent / carer to sleep next to them. Whenever a healthcare professional comes to see you during your stay, they should explain what they are doing or plan to do. If they don’t – or you don’t understand what they’ve said – don’t be afraid to ask them to explain. An accompanying adult must be present when any child is seen or examined by health professionals in the Trust.
