Visitor policy

  • As Covid-19 progresses, visitor restrictions fluctuate for the hospital and the Emergency Department. At present, only 1 parent is permitted to attend with their child to the Emergency Department until they are seen by a clinician in a consulting space with a closed door (excluding the fast-track and short stay areas). Once in a closed space the second parent/carer can enter by presenting to the concierge desk for directions; no siblings or extended family are permitted. Masks are to be worn by all parents/carers and children aged 5yrs and over.

    It is not necessary for family or friends to visit children in the Emergency Department (unless under exceptional circumstances). If a child is admitted to a ward, they may be able to welcome visitors during their stay depending on the specific wards policy.
