COVID-19 Children's Respiratory Assessment Unit

If you are worried your child may have coronavirus, please visit 111 online or call 111 for advice. Many children can be assessed by 111 and avoid the need to come to hospital.

For the small number of children that do need to be seen in hospital, we have opened a Children's Respiratory Assessment Unit in the Women and Children's Building. There is a separate entrance which is well signposted on site.

Children coing to A&E with symptoms such as a fever or a cough will be redirected to this area to be seen. This will help to relieve some of the pressure on A&E at this busy time.

Please be aware that COVID-19 swabs will NOT be performed on this unit.
