Benefits of Children's gastroenterology and nutrition at Bupa Cromwell Hospital
We offer a caring, children-only environment and provide advanced clinical facilities. We have some of the most advanced diagnostic facilities available, and our staff is specially trained to make young patients feel as comfortable and confident as possible. All members of the paediatrics team specialise in working with children only.
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).
