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.

Updated 19 April 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.
