Community Paediatrics

What we do

We are a countywide team of doctors specialising in the care of children in the community. We see children and families with a range of long term conditions for assessment, investigation, management and support. In particular, we provide medical care to children and young people with complex health conditions, developmental problems, disabilities, life limiting conditions and social vulnerability. We carry out statutory assessments for children to support Education and Health Care Plans, for those looked after by the Local Authority, and for those with suspected abuse or neglect. We also provide advice and support to families requiring palliative care and following the death of a child.

We accept referrals from GPs, health visitors, school nurses, allied health professionals and other hospital and community doctors. We will see children and young people up to their sixteenth birthday and we will continue to see young people with complex needs up to their nineteenth birthday.

Children must be registered with a Warwickshire GP or in a Special School.
