Welcome to Dolphin and Lion Ward, an inpatient children's ward. The ward is situated in Centre Block. If your child is staying overnight, please tell the ward staff if you would like to stay with them.
The best place to park is in the multi storey car park. You can then reach the rest of the hospital from level 2, which is the Main Entrance.
We offer all parents whose child is admitted to a ward or A&E a free parking permit. Please ask the nurse in charge about this.
Two visitors per patient, for more visitors, please ask the nurse in charge.
Visiting hours are between 12:00pm and 8:00pm.

Teaching: If your child is going to be on the ward for long, the key teacher will link with your child's normal school and plan individual work for them. Provision can be made for children to sit all national exams on the ward if needed. School is held on the ward Mon-Fri every morning in term time and there are four teachers every day.
