Children's ambulatory clinics
Our children's ambulatory service holds clinics on the Hammersmith Hospital site – see below for further location information.
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.
Please note that clinics are temporarily operating from Queen Charlotte's & Chelsea Hospital (ground floor) which is on the Hammersmith Hospital site. Please ask at the reception desk in Queen Charlotte's & Chelsea Hospital if you require any assistance.
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.
