In expert hands

Our paediatric consultants are among the very best in the world, specialising in common as well complex conditions, including developmental disorders and cancer.   Many hold prominent positions at London's top teaching hospitals, and our young patients travel from all over the globe to be treated by them.

A family-centred approach

We work closely with parents and guardians to agree the most appropriate treatment for your child.  You’ll be in direct contact with support professionals such as speech therapists, play specialists, pharmacists and dietitians, as well as your child’s lead consultant. 

Safety first

We're the only private healthcare provider in the UK to have our own on-site paediatric intensive care units, meaning your child won’t have to transfer to another hospital to receive critical care.  Whatever your child's needs, we're equipped to provide the highest level of care for them and reassurance for the whole family. 

Fast access

Whether your child needs an urgent check-up or a stay in hospital, we can offer you quick, convenient access with same-day appointments and admissions.

A home away from home

We'll go out of our way to make your child's stay with us as comfortable as possible. Whether it’s organising a birthday party or using art, music or pet therapy to keep children relaxed and entertained, nothing is too much trouble.  We can happily accommodate a parent staying overnight, and our flexible visiting hours mean you can spend family time together, just as you would at home.
We had the best specialists on call to speak to anytime, modern technology, and the nurses were just amazingly kind and caring.

Innovative care

The Harley Street Clinic Children’s Hospital was the first in the world to provide paediatric patients with wearable tech monitoring devices to aid with their care and plan for cancer treatments.  This wearable technology allows information, such as symptoms and medication, to be delivered in real time to mobile applications and be monitored by clinicians or medical staff.

Always here for you

If your child suddenly becomes ill, the Children's Doc Around the Clock service operates 24-hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.  This service provides phone consultations or home visits from a private GP, who can refer your child for inpatient care if necessary.
