Evelina London's specialist children’s accident and emergency (A&E) department is part of the A&E department at St Thomas' Hospital. The children’s waiting and treatment areas are separate from the adult department.
A team of specialist doctors and nurses care for children aged 16 and under who have suffered a recent injury or accident or who have developed a sudden illness. They have access to x-ray and scanning equipment to help assess patients quickly.
If your child has been suffering a medical problem for more than 48 hours, please call your GP surgery first. If your child has a minor injury or illness, you may find it easier to go to the Urgent Care Centre at Guy’s Hospital.
Please bring your child’s red book (personal child health record) and a list of any medications they are receiving, if possible.
They aim to diagnose, treat and discharge or admit all children within four hours.
