Children’s emergency department at King George Hospital to open overnight

The children’s emergency department at King George Hospital will start staying open overnight again from next Monday. 

The department was first shut in November 2020 because there were not enough specialist children’s doctors to provide night-time care. 

Two of the hospital’s paediatricians had to shield during the Covid-19 pandemic.

King George Hospital has since recruited more doctors and will be able to keep the department open 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week from Monday, 7 June. 

A new children and young people’s assessment unit will also open at Queen’s Hospital on the same day. 

The facility’s main purpose is to ensure kids are only admitted to hospital when absolutely necessary by providing a separate space for them to be assessed and treated in. 

It brings the hospital in line with national standards.
