Additional information

Providing consent

Consent must be obtained prior to your child undergoing any procedure or treatment during their visit to hospital. 

Most operation consents are already completed at a previous outpatient clinic appointment. However on the day of surgery it is essential that a parent or legal guardian attends with the child. This person must hold parental responsibility. 

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 your outpatients appointment or the nurse at your pre-assessment.
