Children's emergency department currently very busy

Our children’s emergency department is currently very busy. We ask that only one parent/carer attends with their child to avoid overcrowding.

The space within the department is very limited and must be prioritised to care for children with serious or life-threatening illnesses or injuries that need immediate medical attention.

If your child does not have a serious or life-threatening illness or injury, please consider using the alternative services below:

  • Call NHS 111 or visit for advice and guidance
  • Contact your GP surgery
  • Visit a pharmacy

Thank you for your support and understanding.

Inpatient comment:

Everyone offered words of such reassurance and kindness. I felt so cared for and the communication with me at all times was fantastic.
