At Spire Harpenden Hospital, we offer a limited consultation and diagnostic service for children between 0 - 16 years. Treatments and surgery can be offered to 16 – 17 year olds (up till their 18th birthday) if they meet the requirements following a risk assessment and approval by a Registered Children's Nurse. Please be advised that we do not offer any invasive procedures to anyone under the age of 16.
Consultations and minor tests such as ear suctioning and blood tests are available for children under 16. If your child needs further interventional diagnostic tests or surgical treatment, your consultant will discuss this with you and can arrange this for your child at an alternative Spire Hospital or local NHS facility which offers a full service for children.
Young people aged 16 - 17 years (up till their 18th birthday) who need further interventional diagnostic tests or surgical treatment will be risk assessed by a Registered Children’s Nurse to confirm that they can be treated as an adult here at Spire Harpenden Hospital.
We offer the following screens, tests and services to paediatric patients between the ages of 0 - 16. These may vary depending on your consultant.
Please note, we do not do any allergy screening for children under 18 years old.
16 - 17 year olds can access the full range of treatments offered to adults at Spire Harpenden Hospital subject to being risk assessed by a children’s nurse before treatment can proceed.

You can use your private health insurance or pay for your child's treatment yourself and a GP referral is not always necessary. Our customer advisers are on hand to provide more information.
