A number of transport strikes are due to take place this February. If you or your child has an appointment at one of our hospitals or community centres, please plan ahead and do all you can to attend. If you need to cancel your appointment, please contact your clinical team.

At home service, hospital at home,

Our community nursing team are experienced children’s nurses who provide the expertise of hospital care in the comfort and safety of your home.

Being cared for by the team will mean that children are able to go home from hospital earlier and in some cases avoid coming in to hospital. Children will be in a virtual ward under the care of a hospital doctor until they are well enough to be discharged.

We want to help parents become more confident in looking after their children when they are sick.

The team are available for all children living and registered with a GP in Lambeth and Southwark.


The team caring for your child in hospital will let you know if it's possible for them to be looked after by the community nursing team.

If you have any questions about the service, you can email the team.
