Which hospital, which ward?

Your child’s admission letter will tell you which hospital and which ward they will be staying in.

We want to make sure your child is as comfortable as possible and our staff will do everything we can to ensure you have everything you need. 

If you need anything please speak to a member of staff on your ward. 

How was it for you?

We carry out patient polling regularly in our hospitals through the year, allowing us to ask thousands of patients 'how was it for you?'. We use your answers to improve services and the overall hospital experience for patients.

If you are a young patient, or your child is, please take a few minutes to tell us how it was for you in our new online patient survey.
