Children's Services (Paediatrics)
Oaks Hospital provides private care and treatment for children from 3 years of age to their 18th birthday.
At Oaks Hospital we understand that getting ready for a hospital visit can sometimes be an anxious time for children and their family.
Every child will have a pre-admission visit. During this visit they will be able to ask questions and will also have a visit to their room, anaesthetic room (if possible) and recovery department. This will ensure that you and your child are informed and well prepared for the surgery.
All children are nursed in a secure area on the ward. They are given their own private room with TV, and en-suite facility. Playstation, games and DVDs are available. We also provide facilities for parents to stay overnight in a private room with TV and en-suite facility. One parent will able to accompany their child into the anaesthetic room until their child is asleep.
We understand that children recover better when they are surrounded by loved ones. Visiting is therefore unrestricted, but please be guided by the nurse as your child will need to rest. If there are any restrictions for visitors please let the nurse know. On discharge you will be given postoperative information leaflet, pain management leaflet and a contact number for your nurse.
