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 range of paediatric services for children between the ages of 3-16 years. These range from outpatients, physiotherapy consultation and treatments, to day case and overnight stay. For children between the ages of 12-16 we can offer longer in patient stays if required.

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. Specialities include paediatric cardiology, dermatology, ear, nose and throat, gastroenterology, general paediatric (medical and surgery), oral surgery, ophthalmology, orthopaedics and urology. Please select from the drop down boxes below to select an appropriate paediatric surgeon to meet the needs of your son or daughter.


As the largest private hospital in South wales we offer a wide range of both outpatient and inpatient treatments for children. Once you have received your diagnosis your consultant will discuss the treatment options available for your son or daughter. If surgery is needed we offer a specialist paediatric surgical list once a month. This ensures that your child receives specialist paediatric care which meets their needs as a child rather than adult care. Our specialist nurse will be in touch to invite you and your child in prior to surgery to visit the hospital and familiarise yourself with the surroundings whilst also having the opportunity to discuss any concerns or fears you or your child may have. Our aim is to ensure that both you and your child are as relaxed as possible on admission day.
