The Community Paediatric team, part of an integrated child health service based within the acute trust(UHNM), consists of Consultant Paediatricians, Associate Specialists and Staff Grades. We also have up to 5 paediatric trainees at any one time learning with us.
All Consultants, Associate Specialists and Staff Grades offer specialist services to the local population and as a team we manage children with the most chronic complex needs and the most vulnerable groups of children within the locality.
We all work well within multidisciplinary and multi-agency teams and have strong links with local health visitors, school nurses, education, social services and therapy teams.
Our aim is to support all children and young people within the city, Newcastle and Staffordshire Moorlands with complex health needs and disability to enable them and their families to get the best from their childhood, adolescent, and transition to adulthood.
All consultants take referrals from GP’s and health visitors in their patch and from hospital colleagues of any child with suspected developmental problems and are responsible for the assessment, investigation and on-going management of these children in hospital, at home and in their educational setting.
As a team we offer many of our services in locations close to our patients. We offer outreach developmental clinics, and developmental clinics in the hospital and Child Development Centre. We offer children who attend special schools, who have on going medical needs, appointments in their schools which allows for good communication between health and education.
