We welcome children of all ages at The Private GP Clinic, and offer GP consultations for all, from newborns to teenagers. Each of our GPs have many years’ experience of assessing and treating children who come to see their family doctor, and as such are used to managing a very wide range of presentations. They also all have children themselves, and understand how a child needs to be approached to put them at ease.
We understand that when your child is unwell it can be a worrying time, and we will always endeavour to see children as soon as possible – you can be sure of getting a same day appointment.
We also have good links with specialist paediatric consultants, and can provide fast track referrals if required.
Our Children’s Service provides the full range of childhood immunisations, including those not routinely available on the NHS, such as Chicken Pox vaccination and Meningitis B vaccination (Bexsero). All vaccinations are given by one of our doctors, and during your child’s vaccination appointment you will have ample time with the doctor so you are fully informed and can ask any questions regarding the vaccination. This is a free service – you will only be charged the fee for the vaccination.
We are happy to carry out baby and childhood developmental checks – including the 6 week newborn check and the 8 month check.
We have made the practice a family friendly environment – with plenty of toys and books, and even Pac-man to play! There are nappy changing facilities, and we are very happy to find you a quiet place for breastfeeding. We will do all we can to make you and your child’s trip to the doctors a positive experience for all.
