Paediatrics

The Royal Free Hospital is currently the only hospital in north London providing an on-site NHS paediatric consultant delivered service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Designed with children in mind

We think that having a paediatric consultant resident on-site at all times makes for a safer and better service both on the NHS and privately.

Hospitals can be daunting places for children and their families. Our newly-designed and refurbished children’s clinic on the first floor provides a friendly environment to help put children at ease when they come to hospital.

The clinic area has an impressive life-size animal and natural world theme, turning a visit to hospital into a fun event, reducing anxiety and keeping children occupied. While waiting to be seen, the children are given their own take home activity pack to keep them occupied and entertained.

Services, treatments and diagnostics

Our consultants are also able to see children with common childhood illnesses including:

  • constipation
  • diarrhea and vomiting
  • feeding difficulties
  • gastroesophageal reflux
  • troublesome cough
  • unsettled baby
  • viral illneses
  • wheezing
