We are delighted to tell you that the Milton Mouse Children’s Unit is due to reopen for appointments on Tuesday, 28  May, following an extensive £900K refurbishment to expand its clinical space and improve facilities.  The new facility will allow us to see more children and young people quicker, with the benefits of:

  • a new layout, including a new reception area and additional clinical space,
  • five outpatient consultation rooms,
  • six beds and four chairs in an ambulatory unit (Day Care Unit),
  • brand-new working facilities and equipment to improve the environment for both staff and patients.

Patients with appointments that will now take place in Milton Mouse will be contacted directly with further details. The main entrance to Milton Mouse Children’s Unit is opposite car park A, next to the hospital Emergency Department.
If you have any questions regarding your appointment, please contact the Paediatrics Team on 01908 997 003 or visit Reception at the hospital’s Main outpatient entrance.

Childhood immunisation services are available to book at your GP practice & Primary Care Services. This short video outlines the importance of immunisation for children.

A Safe Place for Children

The safety and security of your child while they are in the hospital is of the utmost importance to us.

We want to ensure that adequate procedures are in place to safeguard the personal safety of parents/carers, children and young people in our care. To keep your child safe we have CCTV and controlled access on our children’s wards, neonatal unit, outpatient clinics and in the Emergency Department. We can control entry and exit from all these areas. Access cards are given only to staff that have been thoroughly vetted and trained in safeguarding children.

When you arrive at the department please press the bell on the left of the door once. A voice over the intercom will then ask who you are and who you have come to see (the ward can be busy so you may have to wait for a response). When you leave the ward you need to ask the staff at the nurses’ station to let you out.
