If your child has been invited for a face-to-face appointment or procedure, it’s important you still come (even if local COVID-19 restrictions have changed).
To help keep everyone safe, only one parent or carer can attend. No other family or friends can visit.

What to do if you or your child has symptoms of COVID-19

If you or your child have symptoms of COVID-19 do not come to our sites, except for urgent care

Please do not visit our sites or come for a planned, face-to-face appointment if you, your child or anyone in your household have one of the symptoms of COVID-19. However, our emergency department is always open if your child needs urgent medical help because of the symptoms.

The main symptoms are:

  • high temperature
  • new, continuous cough
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.

If you have any one of these symptoms, current NHS advice is to stay at home (self-isolate) – do not leave your home or have visitors. Read more about what to do: www.nhs.uk/coronavirus

Please also do not come if you have been told to isolate due to travel or contact with other people who have tested positive for COVID-19. If this does happen please let our team know so your appointment can be offered to another family and we can reschedule your appointment to another time.

The safety of our families and staff is our top priority. Find out about the extra steps we are taking at this time to make sure you and our staff are safe.
