Why choose Spire Gatwick Park Hospital for your child's treatment?

We offer surgery services for children and young people covering a wide range of treatments and operations, all available in the comfort of a local, clean and private hospital environment.

Our services include:

  • Inpatient services for children aged 3-18 
  • Outpatient services for children aged 0-18 
  • Face-to-face pre-assessments
  • 24/7 support
  • Family centred care

If your child should need medical treatment, our dedicated team of healthcare professionals including specialist paediatric consultants, anaesthetists and nurses will ensure that they receive the very best care.

We are able to provide treatment for both privately insured and self-funding patients, and a GP referral letter is not always necessary.


We see children from 0-18 years in our outpatient department for consultations. Consultations are with a specialist of your choice, subject to availability. Each of our consultants have comprehensive experience treating children within the NHS.


We see and treat children over the age of six years old in our physiotherapy department.


We see and treat children in our radiology department. Access is fast and if any invasive radiology is required, this is assessed with support from our children and young people’s nurses.


We can admit children aged 3-18 years for surgery following a consultation and pre-operative assessment.

Young people aged over 16 years old have the option of being treated under adult services, if they feel this is more appropriate. These requests are assessed by the Children and Young People’s Team.

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

If surgery is needed, our young patients will be admitted at a mutually convenient time and will stay in a private, en-suite room with a TV. A specialist nurse will be assigned to them for the duration of their stay to ensure that all their needs are met.

If you would like to arrange a visit to the hospital prior to any appointments or surgery you can contact the hospital on 01293 785 511 where a member of the team will contact our children and young people's team,  or email
