Should we cancel my child’s treatment or follow-up appointments at the hospital? If your child has a scheduled appointment for treatment, unless they are unwell, they should attend. In the event of any disruption to the service provided, clinicians will always make decisions to prioritise treatment for those most in need and in consultation with patients. The chief focus will be to provide essential services, helping those most at risk to access the right treatment. Some centres may choose to offer telephone or Skype consultations for those patients who do not necessarily need to travel to the hospital for treatment.
