Paediatrics is the area of medicine that deals with the care of children, infants, and adolescents from their birth all the way up to the age of 18.

Simply put, a paediatrician is a child’s physician who provides care to children for a number of medical conditions. A paediatrician oversees the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of minors in their care at each developmental stage.

Paediatrics is a collaborative specialty as consultants need to work closely with other medical specialties, healthcare professionals and subspecialists of paediatrics to effectively help children with a variety of problems.

Consultant paediatricians specialise in assessing conditions in children, and then there are paediatric surgical consultants within each specialty, e.g. urology and ENT.

If your child is experiencing any of these common conditions or concerns, consider booking a private appointment with a paediatrician:

  • Allergies
  • Ear, nose and throat conditions
  • Gastroesophageal reflux
  • General bone pain
  • General paediatric surgery conditions, including hernias
  • Neurodevelopment
  • Orthopaedic conditions
  • Problems with the penis and testicles

Your consultant paediatrician will be able to discuss the appropriate investigative tests to ensure your child receives a fast and accurate diagnosis. We routinely conduct a variety of tests on children experiencing the above using X-ray, MRI, Ultrasound and blood tests.

A large part of paediatrics comprises ENT (ear, nose, and throat) treatment, as a lot of common and developmental symptoms and conditions associated with this specialty are experienced by children.

ENT surgeons commonly treat conditions affecting the senses, such as hearing and balance disorders. They also see children with conditions that affect breathing and swallowing.

ENT consultants treat people of all ages, from newborns to elderly people. Children are commonly seen by consultants for hearing loss due to a build-up of wax, some developmental ear problems, hearing assessments, tonsil adenoids and tonsillitis.

Common conditions treated by a specialist ENT paediatrician include:

  • Tonsillitis
  • Sinusitis
  • Hearing loss 
  • Blocked nose
  • Tinnitus 
  • Swallowing disorders

Consultants and hospital staff at Ross Hall Hospital will do everything in their power to ensure your child remains comfortable, reassured and happy throughout their stay.

Specialist nurses called sick children’s nurses who are highly trained in child surgery along with general staff nurses will be on the ward 24/7 to ensure children are well looked after and cared for. Children are also offered a private room with access to many children’s TV channels and enjoyable, healthy food.

When you book an initial consultation for your child at Ross Hall Hospital’s paediatric department, our enquiries team will give you all the information you need to choose the right specialist for their specific needs and offer an appointment at a time to suit you.

During your child’s initial consultation, the paediatrician will perform a thorough physical examination and learn about their medical history to get a clear picture of the situation and to determine the appropriate next steps. The paediatricians at Ross Hall Hospital are experts in medical care for children and will ensure your child remains comfortable and reassured throughout the whole consultation.

Depending on their specific symptoms or condition, they may request additional investigative tests to assess further. In some cases, it might be possible for them to have a scan or test on the same day as the initial consultation, but usually, we would arrange the test for a few days to a couple of weeks later at a time and day that suits. 

At Ross Hall Hospital, our patients have access to the most comprehensive service for private paediatric diagnostics and treatments in Scotland, all under one roof. With cutting-edge facilities, your child will always benefit from a quick and accurate diagnosis.

These are some common tests that the specialist may recommend:

  • Ultrasound - Sound waves are used to produce internal images of the affected area.

  • MRI scan - A magnetic field is used to produce detailed imaging of your child’s internal structures. An MRI scan helps your consultant further investigate problems signified by other imaging tests.

  • X-ray - Similar to MRI scans, this allows for detailed imaging of the affected area.

  • Blood tests - Used to look for instances of more severe conditions and diseases.

Once the tests have been completed and the results are ready, a follow-up appointment will be arranged with your consultant to discuss the results and determine the best form of treatment for your child.

The type of treatment your child will receive will be tailored to them and depend on their symptoms, age, and other lifestyle and health factors. If further diagnostic tests or treatments are required, these will be explained fully during your consultation to ensure your child is as comfortable as possible.

At Ross Hall Hospital, we understand that your child’s health and well-being is your top priority, and we can assure you that we will make it ours as well.
