Caring for children
Peace of mind
We understand that for both parents and children hospitals can prove a challenging environment. Our aim is to make the experience as relaxing and comfortable as possible. We encourage you to contact us with any queries you may have and if you would like to look around the suite prior to admission this can be arranged.
Children under the age of two who require an overnight stay will be cared for on F1, the Trust’s paediatric ward. Your child’s safety is paramount to us and F1 has a dedicated team of specialist paediatric nurses who are trained to care for very young children. You will of course be allowed to stay with our child overnight if you wish to do so. For day procedures the ward staff will try to accommodate you and your child in a single room whenever possible.
