Description

Consultant Paediatricians generally see children who have significantly delayed development, or uncommon childhood conditions that are not treated by GPs or acute health services. Consultant Paediatricians work with Community Children’s Nurses, therapists and other agencies to provide a wide range of medical advice, assessment, diagnosis, treatment and support services for children up to age 19. Community clinics are held across Cambridgeshire.

Eligibility

Consultant Paediatricians work with children with a wide range of needs. They assess children up to age 12 with suspected neurodevelopmental disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorder or attentional difficulties. They see children with global intellectual disability and general learning difficulties where an underlying medical cause needs to be excluded.

They also work with children with newly diagnosed permanent hearing impairment, significant visual impairment, acquired physical disability arising from injury or ongoing illness including children with cerebral palsy, genetic disorders that need ongoing medical surveillance or management, long-term conditions including chronic bladder or bowel control problems and chronic fatigue syndrome/ME.
