Children and young people’s services reopened at the Royal Free Hospital

12 April 2021

The children and young people’s emergency department and general in-patient wards at the Royal Free Hospital have reopened.

The emergency department will be open for 24 hours, seven days each week. Anyone aged under 18 needing care for an accident or emergency can visit us. 

If you need urgent medical help or advice, but it is not a life-threatening situation, or if you do not know who to ring, please check NHS 111 online.


Visitor guidance

Only one adult will be allowed to accompany a child visiting the emergency department.

If your child is in one of our in-patient wards, please check with ward staff about visiting arrangements. They will explain if visiting is possible and the specific arrangements in place. You can find more information here.
