If your child has been invited for a face-to-face appointment or procedure, it’s important you still come unless you hear otherwise.
To help keep everyone safe, only one parent or carer can attend. No other family or friends can visit.

Find out about changes we are making during the COVID-19 pandemic

Updated 7 July 2021

We are running our theatres for routine, urgent and emergency operations and procedures, based on our waiting lists and emergencies that present to our emergency department.

Travel for procedures and surgery at Evelina London is deemed essential travel.

Please be aware that there are currently special arrangements for surgery to ensure everyone’s safety.

At present, there are steps you need to follow carefully, or unfortunately your child’s surgery may be cancelled.

These are:

  1. Self-isolating  (PDF 430Kb) 
  2. Pre-admission swab for coronavirus 

If you have any questions, please speak to your surgical team. 



Keeping you safe

If you have any concerns about COVID-19, please speak to your clinical team who will be able to support you.

Please do not cancel your child’s surgery, we are taking lots of extra steps to keep you and your child safe during their time in hospital.
