Spire Cardiff Hospital will begin a refurbishment programme on ward 1 which is located on the ground floor of the hospital. The hospital may be a little noisier than usual and we apologise in advance for any disruption or inconvenience this may cause. We appreciate your patience during this period.

Information about children services at Spire Cardiff Hospital

Spire Cardiff Hospital will no longer offer surgical and outpatient appointments for paediatrics at the hospital from 31 July 2024.

After this date, we will be unable to offer any service or treatment to children and young people (CYP) under the age of 18.

For any CYP care Spire Bristol Hospital treat children aged 3 – 18 offering a full paediatrics service on site. To book an appointment please call 0117 980 4080.

Children's services

At Spire Cardiff Hospital we understand that it can be an anxious time when your child is unwell. That is why we offer quick and efficient access to a paediatric outpatient service for children between the ages of 0 - 18 years. Children under 3 can be seen for outpatient consultations only.

Why choose us?

Our team of paediatric healthcare specialists have a wealth of experience in looking after children and young people. The service is led by Fiona O’Sullivan, a paediatric nurse with over 25 years of experience in the area and works with specialist paediatric surgeons, anaesthetists and physiotherapists, all of whom have extensive experience in working with children.

Our consultants

Looking after children is not the same as looking after adults, that’s why all our consultants specialise in looking after children and young adults within their specialist fields of interest. Specialties include paediatric cardiology, dermatology, ear, nose and throat, gastroenterology, general paediatrics (medical and surgery), oral surgery, ophthalmology, orthopaedics and urology. Please select an appropriate paediatric specialist below to meet the needs of your son or daughter.

Safeguarding children and adults

Safeguarding continues to be a high priority and Spire Healthcare is committed to safeguarding adults, children, young people and looked after children. All healthcare staff have a duty to recognise and respond to safeguarding children or adults issues. Safeguarding is a range of activities from promoting health and wellbeing to protection from harm.
