Coming in as an inpatient

Being an inpatient at Great Ormond Street Hospital means that you will be staying overnight.
Children - People Nurse

Many children your age worry about coming into hospital because they do not know what it’s like or what to expect. Although hospitals can be very large, wards are usually fairly small and friendly, so you'll soon get to know everyone.

You might even have a room to yourself, with your own space.

Mum or dad can stay with you most of the time, so you're never on your own, (unless you want to be).

The rest of your family and mates can also visit whenever they want. The nurses are always around. So if you've got any questions, or just want a chat, they are there to help.
