Our children's ambulatory service holds clinics at Hammersmith Hospital.

Coronavirus update - changes to the children's ambulatory service

Due coronavirus (COVID -19) pandemic, the ambulatory unit is now only open to children with appointment until further notice. This is so we can look after babies and children who will be at higher risk of severe illness if they get the COVID -19 infection. .

We can see babies and children who have been referred and the referrer has made contact with us for a timed appointment. This is so we can make sure we have enough space for social distancing.

We will not be able to see children with breathing problems, cough, fever or vomiting and diarrhoea.

 

 

Only one parent/carer can attend with a child for an appointment.
