Preventing and controlling infection in hospitals is very important. Please don't visit if you or someone in your family is unwell, and observe the rules on hand hygiene and use of face coverings in the hospital.
To help keep everyone safe, we strongly recommend that all visitors have a Voluntary Lateral Flow Test prior to visiting and then undertaken twice per week for as long as your child is in hospital. This is optional. This will be available to everyone in Scotland from 26 April.
Information on how to order Lateral Flow Tests is on the Scottish Government’s website or tests can be collected from COVID testing centres in the afternoon or early evening. If you do not wish to have a test or are not able to test this will not be an obstacle to a visit.
