Our Emergency Department in high demand
Our Emergency Department is currently extremely busy. To support our team during this time please only visit us if your child is seriously unwell.
If not, you can get medical help by contacting your GP, calling the NHS 111 service or heading to 111.nhs.uk and completing the online questionnaire (for those aged five and over).
For advice and information on Strep A, including a symptom checker and advice on which NHS service is the best to help you and your family should you need it, please visit the NHS website.
How to find us
Whether you're coming to one of our hospitals for the first time or you're a regular, we want to keep you up to date on how to reach us.
All of our sites are very well served by public transport, which is generally the easiest and our recommended way of getting here. To help you plan your journey, the Network West Midlands Journey Planner is a great resource for finding the easiest way to get to one of our hospitals or you can use the google map facility on this page. You can find bus routes here
Of course, we understand that it is not always possible to use public transport, so we also have parking details available if you need to travel by car.
Our hospitals have provision for cycle parking. There racks outside the front of the Children's Hospital main entrance. To find the best way to cycle to our locations please click on the 'larger map' view of the google map on this page and use the directions tool to find the cycling directions.
Once you're here
Once you're here, we have meet and greet volunteers stationed at our main entrance who can help you get to where you need to go. We also have maps on site and directions to each department.
We also have a virtual tour which can be great to help children with learning disabilities familiarise themselves with the hospital and online maps to help you find where you need to go.Please do contact us if you feel that we have missed something.
AccessAble, formally known as 'Disabled Go', have surveyed our site and put together a definitive guide to accessibility around our hospitals. If you have disability needs please visit their website to find out more and see accessibility information about Birmingham Women's and Children's NHS Foundation Trust.
