A number of transport strikes are due to take place in November and 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 is likely to 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.

Meet the team

A team of trained staff will be involved in your child's care.

The team will discuss your child's treatment with you in clear language and involve your child in decisions about their care.

Please ask them if there is anything you need to know, don't understand or need help with. Our staff are here to help you.

Our staff


Students

As this is a teaching hospital, students supervised by qualified staff might be involved in your child's care.

It's valuable training for students. It does not affect the quality of your treatment in any way, but please tell us if you don't want them to be present or involved. We'll always respect your wishes.

If you have any questions, ask a member of your child's ward team and they will help.
