About Ward 3A
Ward 3A is a general ward with patients with a variety of medical conditions. Our patients on this ward range in age from young children to young adults, each with their own needs.
Ward 3A has four coloured zones: yellow, blue, green and orange
- The yellow, blue and green zones are all side rooms with en suite facilities
- The orange zone is made up of two 4-bedded bays
Ward 3A facilities
At the end of Ward 3A, you’ll find a playroom. Siblings are also welcome to use this between 9am and 7pm and must be supervised by an adult. Crafts and games are provided for the patients during the week by our Play Specialists and Play Assistants on the ward.
There is a small kitchen with a fridge and facilities to make hot drinks available for parent/carers next to the playroom. Any hot drinks brought onto the ward must have a lid on them. One parent/carer is able to sleep at a child’s bedside. If you wish to do so, speak to someone on the ward to arrange for this.
Ward 3A mealtimes
Ward 3A has its own dedicated ward chef who is on hand to provide your child with their favourite meals during their stay with us. The mealtimes on the ward are approximately 12pm for a freshly cooked light lunch and 4:30pm for a full evening meal.
Ward 3A visiting times
Parents/carers are welcome to visit their child at any time. Only parents or carers are allowed into the hospital after 8pm. Normal visiting times are between 1pm and 7pm on Ward 3A.
All visitors must press the entrance buzzer to gain access to the ward. For health and safety reasons, please do not allow others to follow you into the ward.
We ask that anyone going onto a ward wears a facemask. If you don’t have your own, you will be able to get one at the entrance to Ward 3A. We also ask that you use hand sanitising gel before entering the ward and before you leave. For more information, go to our visiting guidance page.
