Why should my child have treatment at Spire Leeds Hospital?
Spire Leeds Hospital in Roundhay, West Yorkshire, provides private paediatric in-patient care for children weighing 10kg or more (approximately 16 months) up to 16 years. Children of any age can be seen as an out-patient.

If your child needs hospital treatment, our dedicated team of children’s nurses, paediatricians and surgeons will ensure they receive the very best care.

Your child can access private healthcare if they are covered by a medical insurance policy, or you can opt to self-pay for their treatment.
