Community Paediatricians are specialist children's doctors who have a particular expertise in the management of children with long term health problems which may have an impact on other areas of their life.
We undertake the assessment and treatment of children with developmental problems such as delayed milestones, learning disabilities, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD).
We see Children in Care for their regular health check and we also see children for whom there are child protection concerns. We provide support to vulnerable children and their families, liaising with other professionals involved as appropriate. We also provide reports for children who require an Education, Health and Social Care Plan. We also contribute to the process that takes place when a child dies unexpectedly.
