Preparing for your visit

If your child has an arranged admission to hospital (not an emergency admission) you should have received a letter with the admission date and details about where to go. This letter will also contain any special instructions your child needs to follow before their hospital procedure. It is important that you follow the instructions in the letter.

If you are unsure of any of this information, please telephone the number on your letter, or the Contact Centre on 0800 PATIENT (0800 728436).
