It can be a worrying time when you child isn’t well. We understand that sometimes you don’t want to wait for a diagnosis or perhaps you just want a second opinion.

Children from 0-3 years can be seen for outpatient consultation in our outpatient department and children from 3 years old for diagnostic procedures and inpatient care.
