The Day Ward provides care for children requiring investigations and operations under general anaesthetic who go home the same day.
If you receive a letter to attend the Day Ward it is important that you follow all the written instructions you are given.
Before you leave home, you must phone the hospital at the time given in the letter to confirm if your child’s bed is available. As the hospital is on 24-hour emergency call it is not possible to guarantee your child’s bed before the morning of admission. If there is no bed available, your child’s admission may have to be postponed and you could be given a new admission date.
