Did you know

We treated nearly 200,000 patients in 2014/15.

Hospital atrium


Our Outpatients Department holds a wide range of clinics to treat children and young people with a wide variety of different conditions.

Being an outpatient means you will have to come to the hospital to see one of our doctors. You may have to come and visit us a few times but you won't have to stay overnight.

Some outpatient clinics are held in particular units such as cystic fibrosis or oncology and haematology, while some are seen at different sites including Centenary House (mental health), the Ryegate Children's Centre (neurology) and the Northern General Hospital.

When you arrive for your outpatient appointment at the main hospital site you can check yourself in or report to the main reception desk. Look out for the self check-in screens in the main entrance.

New Outpatients Department now open

Our new Outpatients Department opened in November 2016. This is the first part of the new building to open to patients. The rest of the building, which includes new wards, will open in 2017.

Outpatients is now the first department you come to when entering the hospital through the main entrance, making it much easier for families to access.

Find out more about coming for an appointment in the new building and what to expect during your appointment.
