Paediatric Medicine Treating a Wide Range of Conditions in Children
The North West Independent Hospital offers a range of paediatric treatment and care plans. We are registered to treat patients over the age of one year, and offer services that are consultant-led. At all times, our teams promote the rights of children and advocate the provision of appropriate services for children within the hospital.
Paediatric medicine is concerned with the development and health of children, and we deliver a number of clinics that are designed to diagnose, treat and prevent a wide range of childhood conditions and diseases.
We Offer Outpatient Clinics with Specialist Consultant Paediatricians
The hospital offers a large number of outpatient clinics to adults and children alike, and our specialists are able to offer diagnosis and treatment in these clinics including ENT, dermatology and urology. Our consultants are supported fully on-site by our many innovative diagnostic and screening technologies and devices, such as ultrasound, x-ray and MRI scanning.
Coming into a hospital environment can be daunting enough for an adult, but for a child it can be an especially confusing and upsetting time. Our specialists and care team will work closely with parents and care-givers to make the time your child spends with us as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
Our Consultant Paediatrician can offer consultations and treatments for various conditions, including:
- Urinary tract infection
- Incontinence, faecal/urinary
- Altered bowel habit
- Dietary intake/feeding problems
- Recurrent upper/lower respiratory tract infections
- Skin conditions
- Growth concerns
Treatments and Consultant-led Care to Suit Your Child’s Individual Needs
Many of the paediatric treatments we offer can be completed at our outpatients’ clinics, but some more complex treatments may require a hospital stay. At every stage of a child’s treatment, we will ensure that you and your child know exactly what to expect; whether you need to prepare for a hospital stay, or you need to arrange ongoing treatment or care at home. Our inpatient ward is specially equipped and designed with children in mind to ensure a pleasant and comfortable stay.
The paediatric specialists here at the North West Independent Hospital are trained and experienced in all aspects of paediatric medicine including allergy diagnosis and control, dietary problems and skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. If you have any concerns over your child’s health, we can arrange a consultation with one of our paediatric specialists.
