Pediatrics is the practice of medicine for patients from birth to 18 years of age. In the UK, a pediatrician’s role is as a hospital consultant and a parent will only take their child to see the pediatrician if he or she has a complex medical problem or requires surgery. For routine health care, the child would see the family doctor or GP. At the Women’s Wellness Centre they not only have two consultant pediatricians but also a private GP, Dr. Anne-Buk Serero, that specializes in children’s health.
If you would like a health care service for your son or daughter that incorporates the friendly approachability of general practice with the expert guidance of hospital-based paediatrics, you should consider going private.
If you have recently come to live in the UK from another country, you may be looking for a medical system that is closer to that of your home country. In some countries, such as the USA, paediatricians see babies and children for routine care and developmental checks, much like a family doctor or health visitor. Bringing your little one to a private practice will ensure that he receives the same style of medical care that you are used to at home.
The Women’s Wellness Centre is a woman and child centred private health care facility in London with its own paediatric clinic. Their resident consultant paediatricians are Dr Kingi Aminu and Mr Gary Hartnoll and can provide you with helpful advice on all your child’s health care needs, assistance in treating common childhood illnesses and specialist treatment if your child has a chronic condition or disability.
They work closely with other medical specialists to create a personalised treatment plan that has been tailored to the needs of your child. For instance, if your child has a food allergy she can employ the services of a qualified dietician.
