Children's Emergency Department is signposted from the main
Auckland Hospital entrance - follow the 'Adult and Children's
If you are not coming to Children's Emergency Department by
ambulance, then it is best if you can get someone to drive you.
There is limited 10 minute parking available outside the
Emergency Department while you take your child inside, register at
the front desk and get assessed by the triage nurse. A nurse
will stay with your child while you move your car to the main
carpark, where normal parking charges will apply. Because it is
difficult to predict how long you will need to be in the Emergency
Department, parking costs can become expensive. It is better
if someone can drop you off and pick you up when you are
ready to return home.
