Confirming your child's hospital admission

Once you have received a letter with the date, time and place for your child's hospital procedure, we ask that you confirm by:

Phoning the number that has been provided on your letter or
Phoning 0800 PATIENT (0800 728436)

Please read your letter carefully. It will contain any special instructions for your child that you need to follow before their procedure, such as whether they are allowed anything to eat or drink beforehand.

Some of our procedures are carried out in other locations besides Starship or the Greenlane Clinical Centre - you need to make sure you are in the right place at the right time on the right day.

If your child becomes unwell in the week before their hospital admission, please go to your doctor (GP) for advice or treatment.

If your child is unwell in the 24 hours before their admission, or if you have any general questions, please phone the number on your letter or the 0800 number above to ask for advice.
