Dear Greater Glasgow NHS Board,

I am interested in any policies restricting the use of the Accident and Emergency Department of the Royal Hospital for Children.

Specifically,
a) Is there a policy to turn away patients over a specified age, including out of hours?
b) Are outpatients of specialist services provided within the Royal Hospital for Children subject to any different rules for the use of the Accident and Emergency Department, including out of hours?
b) Have there been any changes to the policies in relation to use of the Accident and Emergency Department within the last 12 months, and if so, how have those changes been communicated to specialist services within the hospital?

Thank you for your assistance.

Yours faithfully,

Dan Farthing
