My outpatient appointment

Children’s Outpatients at The Royal London Hospital is based across the 6th and 7th floor. Clinic 1 and 2 are on the 6th floor and clinics 3, 4 and 5 are on the 7th floor. Children come here for all different reasons. 

When you arrive for your appointment first you must sign in at reception. The receptionist will ask for your name and who you are here to see. You can help them out by bringing your clinic letter with you so they can book you in quicker. 

The clinics can get really busy you may be asked to wait before your appointment. It’s a good idea to bring something to do with you so you don’t get too bored waiting. There is a play area in all the clinics with toys and activities to do. You can also speak to the Play Team who can provide extra activities. They are there to help you with your clinic appointment and you can speak to them if you are feeling worried. Sometimes there are special entertainers who come to visit outpatients, such as magicians and balloon modellers. 

Children come into hospital for all different reasons. You may meet some of these members of staff in outpatients: Nurses, Doctors, Play Specialists, Play Workers, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Dieticians, Speech and Language Therapists, Phlebotomists and Clinical Psychologists.
