Providing the full spectrum of paediatric care in a child-centred environment

Children can experience a wide range of illnesses and medical challenges growing up, from the common cold to more complex medical conditions. Infants also require regular consultations in the form of regular check-ups throughout their early life, while adolescents have their own set of medical needs.

Our general paediatricians can deliver care for your child’s health from infancy to adolescence, and help you answer everyday concerns as well as manage and coordinate treatment for complex or chronic conditions. They work closely with families, general practitioners and other paediatric specialists to ensure the highest quality of care is delivered.

With extensive expertise in general paediatrics we can assess and treat a broad range of conditions, including:

    •     Newborn and well baby checks
    •     Allergies
    •     Asthma
    •     Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)
    •     Challenging behaviours
    •     Growth concerns
    •     Feeding problems
    •     Learning difficulties
    •     Sleep difficulties
    •     Weight management

 

As a multi-disciplinary paediatric clinic our other specialists are also available for consultation if your child has a separate, related condition. Working closely together we ensure that they receive the most appropriate care in a safe, warm and reassuring environment.

Because prevention is better than cure, we can also help with regular healthy check ups to ensure that they are growing well and achieving their greatest potential.
