Children's outpatients

We will see your child in Children's Outpatients usually after a referral from their GP or after their admission to hospital.

Children's Outpatients is on LG1 of Oxford Children's Hospital. Appointments usually last about 20 minutes.

When visiting Children's Outpatients, please bear in mind that parking can be difficult at the John Radcliffe Hospital.

Please see 'Parking' in 'Car travel and parking'

On arrival please go to the reception desk to register. When you have registered, we will weigh your child, and afterwards the doctor will call you and your child in from the waiting area for your appointment.

If your child needs to have blood tests done, our nurses will use an anaesthetic cream, and our excellent phlebotomy team, Caroline, Xu and Pete, will take your child's blood.

We have a play specialist in the department to support children during any investigations or procedures.

The Children's Radiology Department is next to Children's Outpatients, in case your child should need X-rays or scans.
