Welcome to The Children's Hospital at Westmead

Please help keep our patients safe.

In response to coronavirus (COVID-19), the following changes have been made:

  • In most cases, we have restricted visitors to one parent or carer per patient.
  • No siblings or other children are permitted.
  • Strict physical distancing rules are being followed.
  • Our facilities are not open to the general public, except for patients and one parent or carer.
  • Everyone will be screened on entry to our hospitals and visitors must stay home if they’re sick.

If you have been to Victoria or a NSW hotspot within 14 days:

  • Please call ahead if your child has an appointment.
  • Don’t delay if your child needs urgent care, but please alert Emergency Department staff on arrival.
  • Visitors who have been to Victoria or a NSW hotspot within 14 days won't be able to enter the hospitals.

We appreciate your patience and understanding.
