Care when you need it
As a parent, your priority is ensuring that you are doing all you can for your child. When they are ill, you will want to find the best care and as quickly as possible. We can offer convenient appointments in different locations to assess your child and either give a diagnosis or make decisions about what treatment they may need.

What can we do to help?
We can help to find a diagnosis or come up with a treatment plan that meets the needs of your child. We always start with a consultation to understand what your child is going through before making any decisions based on this assessment. With every child we ensure that they feel as comfortable as possible – it can be scary visiting the hospital or seeing numerous doctors, so we do our best to make them feel at ease.
Our experience covers a range of different conditions within paediatric orthopaedics. You can see some of the common conditions we treat below. However, this is not an exclusive list and often we see children who don’t have a single defined condition, but instead a group of symptoms or multiple problems.
Common questions we get asked
Below are some of the questions we get asked on a regular basis. We would always recommend a consultation to ensure that we are providing the information that is correct for your child, but these may provide a starting point or help to give you some information or answers you are looking for.
Do I need insoles for my child's flat feet?
Children may have flat feet until they are around the age of 6 - insoles may help to provide support as may wide shoes, however, it is important to have your child's feet assessed to ensure this is the right choice for them. Sometimes the wrong type of insoles may actually provide additional problems. This all comes down to the cause of the flat feet and therefore what correction or support is needed.
