Child Minding (Creche)

COVID-19 Service Update

Our Child Minding (Creche) service is currently closed.

Thank you for your understanding and help to keep our hospital COVID-Safe.

The hospital has a free child minding service for

  • siblings of in-patients and out-patients (Paediatric Wards and Nurseries)
  • children who are required to use the hospital bus service
  • children whose mother is attending Women's Outpatient Clinics

Three qualified staff members run the Creche and are assisted by a team of trained volunteers.

The Creche accepts children up to 10 years of age.

Please provide food and drinks, and any changes of clothing (including nappies) your child may need. The creche can provide water, but no other food or drinks. Please clearly label any clothes, toys and other items you intend to leave with your child

How to access the service

The creche is a 'drop in' centre – no booking is necessary. Children may be left in the creche only while parents/caregivers are in attendance at the Hospital.


Monday to Friday from 8am to 4pm.
Children must be collected by 4pm.
