Our children’s wards offer a range of facilities for you and your child; from single rooms, 4 bed bays to play rooms. Below is a summary of the facilities available:

Each ward has a designated play room for you and your child. When children are sick in hospital their usual routines are disrupted and they may be separated from their family and other familiar people for periods of time. Being able to play while in hospital means that children can continue an aspect of their normal life. In the ward, families will be shown the playroom or play area. There will be toys, games, craftwork, books and other activities available.
While it's important to reassure children about their stay in hospital, it's just as important to look after yourself. You will be better able to care for your child and give support if you're coping well yourself. Remember, it's fine to take breaks. Go for a walk, or get a cup of tea or coffee. Talk things through with your partner, friends or family – they will be able to give support, and talking can be a great stress reliever.
