i had not realised that these were closed in march, due to covid-19, pro tem. all being re-directed to the Whittington at Highgate, where staff have said they will not be able to cope over winter.
so, any small people emergencies, do not waste time going to the wrong place. or call an ambulance.

DD has had occasion to use Whipps Cross or maybe it was Homerton and very grateful we were too.

Whipps is great for paediatric emergencies. Our GS was treated there. Anything more serious they refer on to the Royal London.

UCH did not have a paediatric A&E at the old hospital. but they were usually seen in front of adults.
