A 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 Starfish Ward as a day-case or inpatient.
We have resident paediatric clinical fellows and consultants on call 24 hours a day. 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. Safe and secure our Paediatric Centre can only be entered by child patients and their parents, or visitors approved by you.
The Paediatric Centre 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.
Please note that we do not provide a paediatric intensive care unit at Bupa Cromwell Hospital. However, any deteriorating child will be quickly assessed and stabilised by a Resident Medical Officer (RMO) trained in paediatric intensive care, supported by an on-call Paediatric Intensive Care Consultant, before being transferred to the most appropriate paediatric intensive care provider by the Children’s Acute Transport Service (CATS).
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.
