Our community paediatricians are specially trained doctors for children and young people aged under 19 years old.
We see children in one-to-one assessments in clinics as well as refer to more specialist services if necessary.
We also also run clinics for children with special problems, such as feeding or language and special clinics for young children or teenagers with development problems or a disability.
How to access the service
Your child can be referred to the community paediatricians by their GP, a nurse or another health professional.
The doctors are based in health centres across Northumberland, but also work in many different places, including in schools, at Sure Start Centres and in patient’s own homes.
Our doctors work closely with other health professionals such as nurses or therapists, as well as social workers and teachers.
