Call 02 313 1420 first.
In case of emergency always call
When your child gets sick, call our telephone service. Our professional health care workers can advise you in matters related to the health of your child and they will help you to decide how urgent treatment is needed. There is a nurse answering at the telephone service from 7 AM to 10 PM (7–22 hours). Outside of these hours, a call-back system is in use. During rush and night hours there may be some delay before you will get the back call.
Our on-call service is located in the Department of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine within the U-hospital. We are open 24/7 and admit pediatric emergency patients, i.e., patients under 16 years of age. Patients who have had an accident (trauma patients) are admitted to the pediatric emergency clinic except children who need ambulance transport. These children are admitted to the joint
emergency services located in the T Hospital. If you aren't certain where your child should be treated, just call 02 313 1420.
Our aim is to provide family-oriented treatment and guidance of high quality of different pediatric conditions.
We are a part of
the Department of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine.
