ROYAL HOSPITAL FOR SICK CHILDREN MOVING INFORMATION
The Royal Hospital for Sick Children (including A&E) (Sciennes Road) closes its doors to patients on 9 July 2019.
If a child (up to 16 years) that you care for requires emergency treatment from 8am on 9 July you must go to the new hospital (50 Little France Crescent, Edinburgh, EH16 4SF (Use Gate 2 for both Emergency Departments)
An exciting new chapter in the proud histories of The Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Department of Clinical Neurosciences and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service will begin in July when they move to a purpose-built home at Little France.
The stunning, world-class £150 million hospital is located next to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh on the Edinburgh BioQuarter site, Little France, on the south side of Edinburgh.
From July 2019, it will deliver local, regional and national services in some of the most modern and best-designed healthcare facilities in the world. The new facilities are connected to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh. Having paediatric care, specialist neonatal care, neurosciences and both emergency departments on one site will reduce the need for emergency transfers between hospitals, and will ensure that our teams can share expertise for the benefit of all our patients.
The transfer of patients and equipment from the existing hospitals to the new hospital start on Friday 5 July and continue until Monday 15 July.
Most patients will be transferred in an ambulance with a member of staff.
If you are a patient in hospital over the moving days, you and your family or carer will be given further information regarding your move. Any questions can be answered by the nurse in charge of your ward.
