About the Outpatient Department

The clinics are provided in a child-friendly environment to help children and their parents or carers feel safe and secure.

The service is busy and around 21,000 children up to the age of 18 years old visit each year. The clinics offered include diabetes, epilepsy, asthma, baby clinics, sickle cell, allergy and TB.

These are mainly run by consultant paediatricians (doctors who specialise in the medical care of children) from the hospital. There are Community Clinics run by doctors working for the PCT Community Paediatricians. In addition, visiting Paediatricians from regional centres run the following clinics: nephrology, endocrine, cardiac, cystic, plastics and epilepsy.

Children who are identified in Outpatients as having urgent medical needs will be sent to the Children's Assessment Unit.

The department has a play area and a garden offering a welcoming and safe area for children.
