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.
See all our information about COVID-19, including steps we are taking to keep you safe.
