University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust

Children's outpatient department

We hope your visit will be a happy, positive experience for you and your child in a welcoming and child friendly environment.

Our location

The children's outpatient department is situated on the ground floor (level C) of the main hospital building. We are very near the main entrance and shops; as you enter you will pass Reception on your right, walk straight ahead, past the shops to your left and right, and we are located just behind the baguette shop and eating area. Car parking is available but beware that at busy times, there can be quite a queue. Find out more about getting here and parking .

Meet the team

Our  team is made up of Registered Children's Nurses, care assistants and a clerical team, who all attend regular in-service training sessions. Our specialist nurses are available at a wide variety of clinics such as asthma, allergy, skin conditions and diabetes. We aim to provide a high standard of care to all our families using a multidisciplinary approach.

Service provision

We focus on the individual needs of each family, providing child centered assessment, diagnosis and treatment. Parents/carers are involved in all decision making and we aim to respect individual needs such as age and ability.

If you or your child have specific needs, please contact us prior to your visit.
