Our team helps to manage a range of childhood disabilities and disorders by providing community clinics.

 

Our team helps to manage a range of childhood disabilities and disorders by providing community clinics.

We also help to provide services for safeguarding children and young people.

We see children with concerns relating to:
• Development
• Growth and nutrition
• Special Educational Needs
• Behavioural issues
• Common childhood problems

We also work with ‘looked after children’ in foster care.

As well as our main locations, we also offer clinics at school for children who go to Arbour Vale School, Slough, Manor Green School, Maidenhead or Kennel Lane School, Bracknell.

We aim to be flexible and are able to adapt to the needs of our patients whether that be due to clinical needs, social circumstances, ethnicity or culture.

Children under the age of 18, those who are registered with an East Berkshire GP or those who attend a special school in East Berkshire are eligible to use our services.

Referrals can be made by your GP or another professional working with your child, including your health visitor or school nurse. 

All referrals are considered at a weekly panel meeting. 

Once a referral is accepted, it will be allocated to a doctor and your child will be seen within 18 weeks. 

A letter will be sent to you informing you of the appointment date approximately three weeks prior to it.

If the referral is not accepted, the referrer will be informed immediately.
