Children undergoing surgery

Children being admitted for surgery or procedures will be admitted through our designated paediatric unit. Please dress your child in two-piece pyjamas or comfortable clothes and ensure they have a shower before coming in to hospital. Your child can also bring a toy. For bottle-fed infants, you will need to supply their formula.

For children less than 16 years old we ask that one parent/carer accompany their child to theatre and be available during the recovery stage. Both parents are welcome to be with their child on the ward after their recovery. For overnight bookings, one parent/carer may stay overnight in your child’s room. Meals are provided for your child; however, there may be a charge for boarder parent meals should you wish to receive them. The parent or carer should bring some comfortable clothes and their toiletries.
