Medical Daycare

Ward 7 corridor

Welcome to Medical Daycare.

Our unit at Sheffield Children’s Hospital accommodates medical patients up to 16 years old.

Medical Daycare has seven cubicles and five bay spaces with comfortable reclining chairs. We see patients for either half day treatments – if they’re having a blood test or a quick procedure – or full days. A full day might be needed for an intravenous infusion or if a patient is taking part in an allergy challenge.

Visiting Medical Daycare

As we are only a small unit with a large number of patients, we ask that only one adult comes with the patient. Additional adults will be accommodated if possible at the nurse in charge’s discretion.

Children attend the unit for a variety of procedures and see different teams, so the length of stay may vary. If you are worried about this please call us before your appointment on 0114 305 3247.


We provide free tea and coffee for patients and visitors, and a small selection of toys and crafts to keep children entertained. We also have free WiFi so please feel free to bring a laptop, iPad or hand-held games system. Even when your child is occupied please ensure they are supervised at all times.

Patients that are on the unit for a long period of time are entitled to a snack box from the canteen. Ask the nurse caring for your child for further information.

If you have any queries please call us on 0114 305 3247 or email the Unit Manager, Amy Clarke.
