Our paediatric infectious diseases and immunology service provides comprehensive care for a wide range of childhood conditions.
We offer expert advice in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of children with viral, bacterial and fungal infections, as well as those that complicate other areas of healthcare including surgical infections. Including investigating whether a child’s pattern of infections are due to an underlying problem with the immune system (immunodeficiency).
One important part of infection prevention is vaccination. We offer specialist guidance around vaccination schedules, advice on rare cases of reaction to vaccination, and offer vaccination for those who prefer to receive this in a specialist setting.
Our service accesses specialist microbiology, virology and infection control laboratories to provide the most accurate diagnosis and guide personalised treatment options.
