D19 Paediatric Assessment Unit

Ward D19 is a paediatric assessment unit – a ward where children are located prior to being allocated for treatment.

Please feel free to share your experiences – or those of your child – during your time on the Paediatric Assessment Unit. Please e-mail your contribution to swbh.comms@nhs.net

Patients will need to bring with them a list of any current medication they are on and, if possible, the actual tablets. Patients are welcome to wear their own clothes in order to feel as comfortable as possible. Some of the tests and procedures may require patients to wear a hospital gown, which will be provided if needed. We do not offer a laundering service for a patient’s own clothes.

Valuables should be left at home, as things can easily get lost or left behind somewhere after a transfer.

The Paediatric Assessment Unit is located on the first floor of the main corridor of City Hospital.
