Paediatric service

Spire Cardiff Hospital is pleased to offer a paediatric service for children aged three to 16 years of age. This service ranges from outpatient and physiotherapy consultations and treatments, to day case and overnight stays. For the 12-16 years of age group we can offer longer inpatient stays.

We provide a wide range of treatments and operations in a friendly, clean and safe environment.

Procedures available for children aged three years and above

Initially each child will be seen by a consultant skilled in the area of speciality required. All our consultants have many years experience treating children and young adults. Specialities include dermatology, ENT (ear, nose and throat), gastroenterology,  general surgery, oral surgery, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, general paediatrics, plastic surgery and urology. Advice is also available from consultants around areas such as allergies and nutrition.

At their outpatients appointment many children will be able to have minor procedures undertaken as part of their consultation. If surgery is required your child will be admitted at a mutually convenient time.

Our paediatric service is led by nurse Fiona O‘Sullivan who has over 25 years' experience working with children and young people in both the NHS and private sector. Working alongside her are a dedicated team include anaesthetists, nurses and physiotherapists all experienced in the care of children

Here at Spire Cardiff Hospital we know that coming into hospital can be an anxious time for both the young person and their family, so we offer every child an opportunity to visit the hospital pre-admission, at this visit you can meet a paediatric nurse who can answer your questions, explain about your treatment and allow you to become familiar with the surroundings.

For information on coming in to hospital download our 'Childrens Activity Book' below.

All children who are admitted will stay in a private en-suite room with a TV, DVD and WiFi. The rooms are also able to accommodate a parent should they wish to stay overnight with their child.
