Ward Information

When you arrive

Please check in at the Falcon reception desk (ground floor) so we know that you have arrived and then take a seat in the waiting area on the ground or 1st floor. We also have a check-in kiosk which you can use instead. 

Most clinic appointments start with one of our clinic assistants carrying out some checks, which usually involve height/weight and urine dipstick tests. Once the clinic assistant has done this, the clinician will come to the waiting area and call your child’s name when they are ready.

Facilities

There are two levels within Falcon: on the ground floor, there are nine consulting rooms, including a lung function and negative pressure room. On the 1st floor there are 13 consulting rooms, five echocardiogram (echo) rooms and two electrocardiogram (ECG) rooms.
