Skyline - comprehensive private paediatric centre in central London
We offer extensive care in one place. Your child can be seen by one of our many specialist consultants, and if he or she needs diagnostic tests, these can be carried out at the hospital using our state-of-the-art facilities. If necessary, your child can be admitted to our friendly and welcoming Skyline Ward as a day-case or inpatient.
We have a resident consultant paediatric intensivist on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Whatever your child's medical needs are, our highly experienced paediatric team is dedicated to giving him or her the best possible care, including support for parents and siblings too.
As part of our admissions assessment we are careful to only admit children to our Skyline Ward when we are sure we can meet their needs safely. As the only private paediatric department which has a resident consultant paediatric intensivist we are confident that, if any of our young patients require, our high level clinicians will be able to stabilise the child quickly and decide the most appropriate place for their ongoing care.
Given we do not have a paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) on-site we may need to transfer the child to a PICU at another hospital including the NHS. For your reassurance, having a high level senior clinician on-site rather than on-call ensures your child is safe and attended to immediately.
Our Skyline Ward is safe and secure and can only be entered by child patients and their parents, or visitors approved by you. The Skyline Ward is protected by a coded entry system which can only be accessed by a special card with a timing device, and the code is changed each day. We have a child monitor policy which is closely adhered to by all our paediatric consultants and staff and is led by our Chief Nurse and Medical Director as a standard.
Dedicated paediatric specialists
Our consultants and paediatric specialists are not just highly qualified and experienced; they choose to work with children, and understand how to interact with them to help them feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible.
Emotional health is important too
Our paediatric nurses and play specialists are sensitive to the emotional as well as the physical needs of children and will do everything they can to lessen any concerns you or your child may have. They know how concerned parents are when a child is not well and will help brothers and sisters to feel more informed and confident too.
