Our staff are trained and qualified to work with children, and are required to continue ongoing training and development. Our service is registered with the Care Quality Commission and meets all required standards.

Our children's community nursing team provide nursing services for children and young people with acute and complex health nursing needs across Berkshire. This includes specialist school nursing.
Our community paediatrician team provides medical advice, assessments, diagnosis and treatment for children and young people in Berkshire up to age 18 (or 19, if still in full time education).
Our specialist dietitians offer advice on feeding and nutrition for children who might not be able to eat all the nutrients they need. We support children who need to be fed through a tube, and families who need advice about supplementing the food their child takes in through their mouth (orally) to ensure they grow properly.
