Paediatric rapid referral service
On this page:
The rapid referral clinic is a rapid access general paediatric outpatient clinic for children aged 0-16 years who require an urgent paediatric specialist opinion within four weeks.
What we offer
Up to 15 new patient slots a week in clinics on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. Referrals are triaged every week day and parents will be contacted to offer them an appointment. Referrals may be diverted to a more appropriate service if deemed necessary. We aim to see new referrals who require rapid assessment within 4 weeks.
