At The Portland Hospital we have general paediatrians who are experienced in managing a wide range of common medical childhood conditions. We have highly experienced general paediatric surgeons who work with young patients who need surgery, from premature and unborn babies to toddlers and young adults.

We also have a large number of specialist consultants who work with children on conditions affecting certain areas of the body including gastroenterology, orthopaedics, endocrinology, urology and neurology.
