Changes to the Paediatric Emergency Area

The Paediatric Emergency Area is being temporarily relocated from Wednesday 4th February 2015.

Paediatric patients should continue to present to the main Emergency reception area for registration and assessment.

Once patients have been registered and assessed, they may be directed by staff to the Paediatric Emergency Department which is temporarily located within Ward 2 West (the Paediatric Ward).

This change is to accommodate the opening of a temporary short stay area in the Emergency Department.

Once construction of the new Short Stay Unit is complete in Spring 2016, Emergency Paediatrics will return to its original location in the main Emergency Department.
