Community Paediatric Services
WHO WE ARE
Community Paediatricians are specialist children's doctors who take a key role in the supervision and coordination of care for the individual child/young person and their family.
WHAT WE DO
We run a variety of different specialist clinics providing child-centred assessment and management of developmental problems and social communication difficulties. We also provide statutory assessments for Child Protection, Looked After Children and EHCP (Education, Health and Care Plan).
In Newham community paediatricians work as part of the Specialist Children and Young People's Services (SCYPS) team and are based at West Ham Lane Health Centre. We work closely with other SCYPS team members including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and nursing. We also work jointly with Hospital based paediatricians, Newham child mental health services, education and social care.
