Working with you – keeping you informed

Before your child comes into hospital, we’ll send you a special patient information pack. Here, you’ll find all the information you need to help you and your child prepare.

We also encourage you to bring your child to visit the hospital before their admission so they can get familiar with their surroundings. They can also meet the staff who will be looking after them, easing any worries you may have ahead of time.

Visiting your child

We have an open visitor policy, so your child can enjoy the comfort and support of having friends and family visit at any time.

Our friendly nurses will be there to answer any questions you might have and to regularly update you on how things are going with your little one.

Most inpatient stays for a child are classed as a Day case and your child is likely to return home with you the same day. On any rare occasion that your child stays overnight, we have a dedicated Paediatric Nursing Team who stay with your child.

Food & drink

To make sure your child is fed and watered well, we offer a special children’s food and drink menu that’s both nutritious and delicious. You’ll never have to worry about fussiness – there’s something for everyone. We can also provide food for family members if required.

Preparing your child for a hospital visit or stay

We know that a hospital visit or stay can be an unfamiliar and potentially overwhelming experience for your child. Our priority is to ensure that they feel comfortable, safe, and supported throughout their time with us. To make the process smoother for both you and your child, here are some tips on how to prepare them for their time in hospital:

    1. Open and honest communication: Start by having an open conversation with your child about the upcoming hospital visit. Explain the reasons for the visit or stay in a way that’s age-appropriate and reassuring. Encourage them to ask questions and address any concerns they might have.
    2. Bring comfort items: Make sure your child brings a favourite stuffed animal, blanket, or toy from home. Having familiar items nearby can provide a sense of security and normality in an unfamiliar setting.
    3. Stay calm & reassure: Children often take cues from their parents' emotions. Staying calm and positive will help reassure your child and create a sense of security.

Again, remember that we welcome pre-treatment visits to the hospital where you can familiarise yourself and your child with the environment and staff members. We’ll happily answer any questions you may have!
