Update – Royal Hospital for Children and Young People

As you may already be aware, NHS Lothian recently announced that the new Royal Hospital for Children and Young People will fully open on Tuesday 23 March 2021.

From this date, the remaining Children’s services presently located at Sciennes, including A&E, will move to the Royal Hospital for Children and Young People located next to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh at Little France.

The new facilities are already home to the majority of the Children’s Outpatient services and the Department of Clinical Neurosciences (DCN), which both migrated to the Little France site in July 2020. Earlier this year, the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) inpatient facilities and some outpatient services also moved to the new hospital.

The Royal Hospital for Children and Young People will deliver local, regional and national services in some of the most modern and best-designed healthcare facilities in the world. With the new facilities connected to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, paediatric care, specialist neonatal care, neurosciences and both Emergency Departments are now all on the same site. This reduces the need for emergency transfers between hospitals, and ensures that the NHS Lothian teams can share skills and expertise for the benefit of all patients.

The remaining Children’s Services that are presently located at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children at Sciennes will move to the new hospital by Tuesday 23 March.

From 8am on Tuesday 23 March, all patients and any child or young person up to the age of 16 requiring access to A&E, must go to the new Royal Hospital for Children and Young People at Little France.
