Key things to know when you come to Sheffield Children’s

  • 1 parent or carer only to accompany a patient whether this is in the Emergency Department, an outpatients appointment or an overnight stay
  • Remember to wear a face covering
  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Keep 2 metres apart from others

Outpatients appointments, both face to face and virtually are continuing. Both non-urgent surgery and urgent surgery are also taking place. If you are expecting an appointment or surgery, please bear with us as we contact everyone. If you have any concerns, please contact the relevant department.

Keeping you safe

We have worked hard to make the Trust safe for patients, families and staff. This means some changes such as how the seating areas look, more hand washing facilities and staff wearing personal protective equipment (PPE). You can find out more about how we’re keeping everyone safe here.

You can read more about non-urgent surgery, which restarted on 17 June, here.
