How to access our service

Referrals to our service are made via Health or Education professionals eg. GP’s, schools, health visitors, other consultants.  Unfortunately we are unable to accept referrals from parents.

Clinics are by appointment only – 9.00am to 5.00pm – Monday to Friday

If you have any worries about your child’s development, speak to your Health Visitor (through your local Health Centre or Children’s Centre), nursery or school SENCO (special educational needs coordinator) teacher, or your GP. They may be able to support you themselves, or they may refer you to us at Community paediatrics or to other services.
