General paediatrics

Our experienced general paediatricians at Evelina London Children’s Hospital can diagnose and treat a wide range of childhood problems, including asthma, chest infections, allergies and problems with growth, development and nutrition. We provide care for all young patients from newborn babies up to 16 years of age

Our multidisciplinary approach means our general paediatricians work together with experts in each specialist area, such as audiology, heart and lung care, immunology and speech and language therapies. This means that if your child needs further specialist care following a diagnosis, our general paediatricians can refer them to the right consultant quickly.
