Can my pets visit me in hospital?
We know how important pets are. But because we look after a lot of very sick children who might pick up lots of infections easily and pets might bring these in with them, we don't allow pets in to the hospital.
That doesn't mean we think your pets are dirty! It's just that all animals carry lots of micro-organisms around with them that normally cause no problem. But when children are very sick they might catch an infection from these which they wouldn't normally.
Your parents can bring in photos or videos of your pets to show you any time, of course.
