Children are nursed in bays according to their medical and psychological needs, bays may therefore accommodate boys and girls.
Wherever possible and when required, older children are nursed in bays of boys or girls or in single cubicles when available.
It is recognised that children and young people prefer to be nursed according to age group. Gender is less important to them so whereever possible their choices are accommodated.
