How to find us
The nearest car park is Car Park 3, near Children’s Outpatients. Come through this entrance and look for signs to Holly Ward. Alternatively parking is available in the main car park and Holly ward is signposted from the main entrance. There is a video buzzer on the entrance to the ward and when answered you will be let through where you need to report to our receptionist. Please be vigilant for tailgating and do not let other on and off the ward.
We actively encourage children and families to remain together when in hospital. Parents who wish to be resident can be with their child all of the time if they so wish. Other parent/carer and siblings may visit during the hours of 8am-10pm. There is a maximum of two visitors per bed space.
We encourage siblings to visit but they must be supervised at all times by an adult. Siblings can use the play facilities and toys as long as they tidy up afterwards.
Additional visitors are allowed, at the discretion of the nurse in charge, between 2pm and 8pm.
Keeping children and families safe is paramount. We operate video entry access for getting in and out of the ward.
Consent must be obtained prior to your child undergoing any procedure or treatment during their visit to hospital.
Tablets and medications
It is very important that your child continues to take any prescribed medications until a medical person tells them otherwise. Please discuss with your doctor at admission any medication that your child is taking, including homeopathic and over the counter remedies.
Any medications that are brought in for your child need to be given to the nurse. She will lock them away and return them to you when your child needs them.
