Ward 4A facilities
On Ward 4A, you’ll find a play area at the very end of the ward in the yellow zone. Patients and siblings are welcome to use this play space but must be always supervised by an adult.
Next to the play space is a kitchen area, where parents/carers can make a hot drink, prepare food, or heat up baby milk.
Next to each patient bed on the ward, there is also a pull-out bed to allow one parent/carer to stay with their child overnight. Speak to someone on the ward if you would like to use this.

Ward 4A 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.
