Children in Hospital Ireland has launched a new guide to hospital admissions with lots of information to support parents and carers of a child who requires hospital care. The guide provides families with information from preparing for admission right through to preparing for discharge.

Funded by the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth (DCEDIY), this guide was created in partnership with the members of the CIH Ireland Parent Advisory Group who have experience of being in hospital with their child. It offers tips and advice on what to bring, where to stay, preparing for procedures or operations, supports available and much more.

The guide is available free to order or download on the InformationHub.
