This community based service is part of the Paediatric Department. It provides specialist medical input into the management of children with specific vulnerabilities or needs such as children with disabilities, children with special educational needs and ‘Looked After’ children. The audiology service and the medical responsibility for Adoption and Fostering are also provided by this service. We provide school and clinic based services and we liaise closely with colleagues in education and social care. We have strong links with the multiagency/multidisciplinary Integrated Service for Children with Additional Needs, based at Rowan House.
Our team consists of one full time consultant, one part Community /part acute consultant, two associate specialist paediatricians and one staff grade paediatrician. We are supported by a dedicated administrative team.
We can be contacted at Hyde Clinic, Union Street, Hyde SK14 1NX.
