Staying with your child
We encourage parents to stay with their child and can provide a bed. However, because of lack of space, only one parent can stay overnight. Brothers and sisters should not stay overnight, but can visit during the day.
Please attend doctors ward rounds
The morning ward round usually starts at 10am. We appreciate parents being present to ask any questions that they may have. Ward rounds are repeated at intervals and you will have an opportunity to meet the medical team caring for your child. We can only discuss the medical condition of a child with a parent or guardian.
