Temporary entrance to Children’s Emergency Department at University Hospital

Please be advised, as part of the Emergency Department Expansion activity, the Children’s Emergency Department (CED) entrance at University Hospital, Coventry, located next to the main Emergency Department, will be temporarily closed to walk-ins from today for 15 weeks.

The closure will allow for essential building works to take place to redevelop the CED, which will see increased capacity for clinical assessment and in the patient waiting area.

During this time, patients and visitors attending CED will need to access the department via alternative routes:

  • Through the Women and Children’s entrance located in the west wing of the hospital. Once you have entered the building, following the signage in place to the temporary CED entrance.
  • Or enter the hospital’s main entrance, turn left and go up to the first floor and follow the signage that will be in place to guide you towards the west wing where you will find a temporary entrance to the CED along the corridor.

In addition to the temporary signage inside the hospital, outdoor signage will also be in place to advise on the changes. If you choose to visit CED by car, please park in one of the main visitor car parks before following the alternative access routes.

To enable us to effectively manage our capacity in the temporary CED waiting room, we are asking patients to be accompanied by only one parent or carer.

Please be reminded that staff are working hard to minimise any disruptions and we urge people to always treat our staff and patients with respect and kindness.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your continued support during the building works.

Further information on the project will be shared as it becomes available.
