Who are the Community Paediatricians?
Our service is made up of doctors and specialist nurses. We provide specialist medical input into the management of children with specific vulnerabilities or needs such as children with disabilities, children with special educational needs and cared for children. The medical responsibility for adoption and fostering are also provided by our service. We see children in schools and clinics, and we liaise closely with colleagues in education and social care. We have strong links with the multidisciplinary Integrated Service for Children with Additional Needs (ISCAN), based at Rowan House.
We do not currently offer a sleep service. For advice, information, and support about your child’s sleep, please see www.
