Parents | Carers

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.

In accordance with NSW Health guidelines, everyone will be screened on entry to our hospitals and visitors must stay home if they’re sick.

If you have been to Melbourne in the last 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.

We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Our hospitals are not only world class, but also warm, friendly, colourful and welcoming. They are designed for kids and families.

It will help soothe your child's fears and anxieties if parents and children both know what to expect and can talk about their hospital visit.
