Paediatrician

Paediatrics is the branch of medicine which diagnoses and treats diseases in children and teenagers. This is carried out by a paediatrician. This is a popular speciality which has its own particular issues and concerns, pertaining to children.

Children and teenagers experience many of the same illnesses and diseases that affect adults but this often manifests itself in different ways. This means different forms of treatment as compared to adults.

Some paediatricians deal with general diseases whereas others choose to specialise in a particular area, for example, allergies.

A good paediatrician recognises the particular needs of children and teenagers in regard to medical treatment. They understand that they respond differently to treatment and require a different approach.

This is something our paediatricians are fully aware. They understand that children are not ‘small adults’ and prescribe a range of treatment which takes that into account.

Our paediatricians are highly trained and eminently qualified professionals who are members of the prestigious Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health or the British Association of Paediatric Surgeons. These are well respected bodies that have strict guidelines regarding membership.

They have extensive experience and have in-depth knowledge of their subject area which they use for the benefit of their patients. Many of them are involved in leading edge research and have produced numerous publications as a result.

If you are the parent of a child who requires the services of a paediatrician then rest assured you will be in very capable hands.
