Changes to planned appointments and admissions
We have changed all our clinic appointments to a telephone or video call wherever possible. We are seeing a small number of children and young people at the hospital or community centres for urgent appointments. Some of our appointments have been postponed.
We are continuing to offer urgent and emergency operations and procedures, but many planned admissions have been postponed at this time.
The team caring for your child will be in touch in advance to let you know about the arrangements that have been made for you. Please understand that we have put these measures in place to keep both your child and others safe. For any postponed appointments or admissions, it may not be possible to confirm when it will go ahead at this stage.
If you need to get in touch with the team caring for your child, this will be via the usual routes unless you hear otherwise. You can find contact details for our services on our website. You can also call us about appointments on 020 7188 4000 (Monday to Friday 8am to 7pm) and admissions on 020 7188 9098 (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm). Our teams are dealing with an increased amount of contacts at this time but they will do their best to get back to you as soon as possible.
To reduce the spread of infection, we are currently restricting visitors to the hospital and our community sites.
For appointments, only one parent or carer should accompany their child.
For overnight stays, only one parent or carer may visit at a time. We are allowing two named parents or carers to visit but one at a time.
Siblings, other family members and friends will not be allowed to visit. We ask that they do not attend the hospital or community site. This will help us to minimise the number of people onsite and reduce the risk of spreading infection, to keep you and your family safe.
There may be exceptional circumstances to this, which we will discuss with you on an individual basis. Thank you for your cooperation.
