Private Paediatrician | Paediatrics | Shrewsbury & Wolverhampton

At Summerfield Healthcare we have a team of experienced paediatricians available for private consultations for infants, children, and adolescents. Our paediatricians have NHS experience of examining and treating a range of childhood and medical issues. 

We understand how important it is for families to have adequate time to properly discuss their concerns without feeling rushed out of the door. We also understand that some things take longer to examine, discuss, and diagnose. It is vitally important that your child is seen by a trustworthy specialist who is able to give you the time, dedication, and commitment in order to meet your child’s medical needs. 

If you would like to book your child in with a paediatric specialist and be seen quickly, please get in touch today.

Do I need a referral?

As Summerfield Healthcare operates independently, you will not need a referral from a GP or other doctor.

When you come in for your consultations and any follow-up visits, your paediatrician will summarise your child’s consultation and recommendations in a letter to your GP to ensure medical records are kept complete.

If you have already been referred, you may send this to us to share with the Paediatrician prior to your appointment.

Can I opt back into the NHS for further treatment?

You are under no obligation to continue with private clinics following your consultation with Summerfield Healthcare. We are also happy to consult to give you peace of mind while you await your NHS referral.

Any further referral or testing deemed necessary by our Paediatrician can be directed to further private services, or back into the NHS system.
