Children's clinic

Welcome!

Your doctor may send you to the children’s clinic because we can treat lots of different things to do with skin, blood, bones and organs. Sometimes you may visit the clinic to see a doctor about a condition that you were born with, or to find out more about something that is making you unwell.

What is it like?

The Children’s clinic is a bright and colourful place with lots of toys, books and games. People may come to us if they need special medicine or some tests.

Sometimes you may have tests like these:

  • A doctor or nurse may listen to your heart
  • You may have a picture taken by a special x-ray machine or an ultrasound machine.
  • Sometimes the doctor or nurse will need to take a little bit of blood, poo or wee to test
  • You may have your temperature taken with a thermometer
