This area has an electronic booking-in system.  This has been developed in-house so that families can use their appointment letter to check in using one of the kiosks. The large TV screens will then inform the family when the doctor is ready to see them from one of the clinic rooms.

The volunteers will help you to use this system but do ask the receptionists if you need help.Please ensure your contact details are up to date when visiting all outpatients areas.
