National Child Psychiatry Inpatient Unit

The National Child Psychiatry Inpatient Unit is located in Ward 4 at the Glasgow Royal Hospital for Children. It provides flexible inpatient psychiatric services for children aged 5-11 years with severe psychiatric disorders, which may be complicated by neurodevelopmental disorders, physical health problems and complex psychosocial factors and require the specialist assessment and treatment skills of our Child Psychiatry Team.

As the unit is a national service we consider referrals from all Scottish Health Boards.

Getting Here


To maintain the safety of patients, visitors and staff, visiting still needs to be carefully managed. You can find current information and guidance on the Patients, Hospital Appointments and Visiting page or contact the ward or unit directly to discuss visiting arrangements.
