If you are looking to visit the Hospital with a child or young person, please take a look at this film which explains all about child visits including the child visitor accreditation process and what happens when you visit with a young person. The film also gives a tour of the Child Visiting Suite, which is the only area a young person will visit whilst at the Hospital.
The patient will submit a written request. The clinical team will help him/her to do this.
If you have any questions about a child visiting the Hospital, please contact your social worker or phone the Family and Volunteer Support Service.
