Everything you need for your child’s health
When you become a parent what often amazes you is how your priorities change, so when you suspect that something is wrong you will move heaven and earth to make the wrong a right. Fortunately, at Summerfield healthcare we realise this and that is why we offer short notice appointments with experienced Paediatricians at our West Midlands clinics, often with no referral being needed.
Whilst the range of childhood diseases is too exhaustive to list here all medical professionals agree that early diagnosis is the key to successful outcomes.
Healthcare for all the family, taking time to listen as well as Diagnose
Speaking to parents a common criticism with NHS care is the lack of time dedicated to listening to the relatives. And for most of our patients’ parents this deficit of family focus is why they have turned to private medicine. Summerfield healthcare treat our patients as customers, giving you the time and attention that relationship demands.
Why Take The Chance?
Waiting times to see a paediatrician in the NHS can be over 2 months and 3-4 times as longer than the private alternative which is why more parents are choosing to bring their child to visit Summerfield Healthcare’s Paediatricians.
As a parent it is vitally important that your child is seen quickly and by a trustworthy specialist. For more information on our Paediatricians and their specialism’s please visit our meet the team ↓ section below.

Thankfully with Summerfield Healthcare I was able to see a Doctor swiftly.
I used to think that private healthcare was for the privileged few. Now it's essential for the self-employed."Pippa Cox
