There is a playroom available between 9am and 7pm for patients and siblings to use, as long as they are supervised by an adult. The playroom can be found on the far end of the ward in the yellow zone.
There is also a Teenage Social Hub in Ward 3B, which is an area available for teenage patients on the ward to use. This hub includes a pool table, TV, jukebox, and social den space, as well as two day case beds.
There is room for one parent/carer to sleep at a child’s bedside. If you wish to do so, speak to someone on the ward to make arrangements.
