We also want to ensure that going home from hospital is as straightforward as possible, with children, their families and their carers knowing about the help that is available to them when they are at home.
Day Case room: We have a new Day Case Chemotherapy Room where children can receive their treatment within an appropriate space.
Playroom: The playroom has a wide selection of toys, games, puzzles and books for all ages. Activities for different age groups are organised by the play team. Brothers and sisters are welcome but need to be supervised by a parent or carer. There is also a large outside play area which is accessible from all bedrooms and the day case room.
Family room: There is a family room where you can take some time out from the ward. There is also a mini-kitchen including a kettle, toaster and microwave.
Isolation: Children who are nursed in isolation may only be visited by their immediate family, or at the discretion of the nurse in charge, as special precautions may need to be taken. The nurse will be able to advise you on this.
We welcome any comments you have to make and a member of staff is always available to discuss any concerns or issues you have. If you are not able to resolve concerns with the staff directly involved in your loved one’s care, then please contact the Ward Manager.
Parents and Carers are welcome at any time.
Visitors – We advise 11am to 7pm for all other visitors, but please speak to the nurse in charge if visitors need to come at another time.
Please help to keep a calm environment on the ward by not having too many visitors at once.
For security, all visitors need to use a buzzer system for access to the ward, and CCTV is in use on the ward.
Please do not visit the ward if you are unwell (especially coughs, colds and stomach upsets) or if you have been in contact with infection.
