A number of transport strikes are due to take place this December. 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.

Nurses' strike action will take place on 15 and 20 December. Our emergency and time critical services will be open. We'll let you know if your appointment is affected.

Acute pain service

Acute pain is mild to severe, short-term pain. Our acute pain service helps children in pain who are staying in Evelina London Children's Hospital, often following surgery. They also see inpatients not necessarily having surgery, but who are suffering from severe short-term pain.
