Children's Healthcare at Spire Bristol Hospital

When kissing it better doesn't work. Spire Bristol Hospital paediatrics and children's healthcare.

The service offers a wide range of treatments and operations - all available in the comfort of a local, clean and private hospital environment.

Paediatric surgery is lead by nurse Lisa Cree, RGN, RSCN, who has over 20 years' experience working in both the NHS and in private hospitals.

Every child will be seen by a paediatric specialist consultant within the chosen area of specialty - whether it be dermatology, ENT, general surgery, oral surgery, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, general paediatrics, plastic surgery or urology - each with a minimum of 10-15 years experience of treating children within the NHS.

At their outpatient appointment, many children will be able to have minor procedures undertaken during the consultation. If surgery is needed, our young patients will be admitted at a mutually convenient time.

We know that when children need to come in to hospital, it can be an anxious time for the whole family – that’s why we offer children and their families an all-important opportunity to visit the hospital prior to admission, become familiar with the surroundings and meet the experts who will be involved in their care.

When a child comes to the hospital for a surgical procedure, they will stay in a private en-suite room, with a TV. The rooms are large enough to accomodate a parent, wishing to stay overnight.
