What is it like?

The Kempton Day Bed Unit is a bright and colourful place with lots of toys, books and games. People come to us if they need an operation but do not need to sleep overnight, but may also need special medicine or some tests.

Sometimes you may have tests like these:

  • A doctor or nurse may listen to your heart
  • You may have a picture taken by a special x-ray machine or an ultrasound machine.
  • Sometimes the doctor or nurse will need to take a little bit of blood, poo or wee to test.
  • You may have your temperature taken with a thermometer
