Care for your child's digestive health

Our experienced paediatric consultants provide specialist care for babies and children with a range of conditions affecting their digestive system

About gastroenterology for children

Paediatric gastroenterology is a medical specialty focusing on the diagnosis, treatment and management of digestive problems. Anywhere in your child's digestive system can be affected; from their oesophagus and stomach to the small intestine, large intestine (colon), rectum, liver, gallbladder and pancreas.

With a multidisciplinary team of paediatric consultants and specialised diagnostic imaging and nutritional services, we're able to provide the comprehensive care needed to manage a wide range of gastrointestinal (GI) disorders. Common paediatric GI conditions we treat include gastro-oesophageal reflux, ulcers, constipation, diarrhoea, lactose intolerance, gut infections and infant colic.

The Portland Hospital also has a dedicated feeding clinic for children of all ages who have difficulties with feeding or nutrition.
