Paediatric Review ClinicLocations:
At your Paediatric Rapid Review or Paediatric Outpatient Clinic appointment, your child will see a specialist paediatric doctor.
The Paediatric Rapid Review Clinic provides appointments on short notice. They are usually a one-off. Appointments are for babies and children who have recently been admitted to our Paediatric Ward or Special Care Nursery, or who attended the Emergency Department and require further follow-up.
The Paediatric Outpatient Clinic sees children referred from their GP with general paediatric medical issues as well as babies and children needing longer term follow-up after an admission.
If your baby had a hip ultrasound that needs to be followed up, you will be referred to a separate nurse-led Paediatric Telehealth Clinic.
The paediatric doctors are specialists in children’s health and development. They will assess and manage your child’s problems and follow up on any concerns that you or your child have.
