Strike action by junior doctors will take place at our hospital and community sites from 7am on Tuesday 11 April to 7am on Saturday 15 April. We'll contact you if you or your child’s appointment is affected. We apologise for any inconvenience.

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

Outpatient parenteral antibiotic therapy (p-OPAT), Antibiotic therapy


The children's outpatient parenteral antibiotic therapy service (p-OPAT) helps send children home from hospital early when the only barrier to their discharge is the need for intravenous (IV) antibiotics. Intravenous antibiotics are given through a temporary plastic tube in the vein of your child, generally in the arm or hand.

Our service can either arrange for a community nurse to give the IV antibiotics to your child at home or, in some cases, we may be able to teach you how to give your child their IV antibiotics.

You'll need to attend one of our clinics once a week whilst treatment continues. Here we will give you more antibiotics and supplies to take home. We'll also use this time to check your child's progress.
