Paediatric services

A range of outpatient appointment and assessment for children up to the age of 16

The health of your family is important to us, which is why we have a team of Private Consultant Paediatricians who offer outpatient appointments and assessments for children up to 16 years of age.

Where subsequent treatment is required, the consultant will discuss this further with you. Treatment may be carried out elsewhere as Albyn Hospital does not offer surgery to children under 16 years of age.

Private Paediatric Assessments offered at Albyn Hospital:

  • General Paediatrics
  • Paediatric Urology
  • Paediatric Ear, Nose and Throat
  • Paediatric Colorectal 
  • Paediatric Gastrointestinal
  • Physiotherapy including sports injuries and musculo-skeletal growth and developmental disorders
  • Imaging including musculo-skeletal and gastrointestinal Imaging across a number of modalities such as MRI, ultrasound and X-rays
  • Private GP and Health Services including travel clinic and vaccinations

We run a daily private GP clinic and have skilled GP’s and nurses who will provide advice about health, vaccines, travel and where necessary onward referral to our Consultants.

For advice or to self- refer, please call on 01224 577426.

With the help of our friendly helpful nurses we strive to provide a comforting setting and a caring pathway, reducing fears and anxieties for children and parents alike.

A GP referral to an appropriate consultant is essential. The parents of self-pay patients are most welcome and if insured, are advised to contact their insurance company before arranging any treatment.

We have highly skilled musculoskeletal Chartered Physiotherapists who will treat children from the age of 8 upwards. We will undertake a comprehensive assessment to identify the individual problem and develop a treatment plan including exercise, soft tissue massage, orthotics, taping, splinting and return to sport rehabilitation.

    If you are paying for yourself, we can usually offer an upfront cost which you can then choose to pay in full or access one of our easy payment options.

    If you have insurance, we can arrange direct settlement with your insurance provider, although you should check in advance to see if your treatment is covered. For more information, visit our private medical insurance page.
