  • About the Children’s Service

    The Children’s Service has been established to provide complementary care alongside orthodox treatments. The clinic sees children up to 18 years old with a wide variety of illnesses.

    Our clinics offer a patient-centred holistic approach, safely integrating complementary medicine appropriately in a variety of conditions, including dietary and lifestyle advice and symptom management.

  • Aims of the service and treatments

    Our team is led by a Consultant Paediatrician. All our doctors have trained in complementary therapies.

    The team works closely with the UCLH Paediatric and Adolescent teams and other professionals elsewhere who are involved in your child’s care. All the treatments discussed by the children’s clinic team can be used safely alongside conventional treatments. We can also offer advice to parents and young people on both conventional and complementary treatments.

    Children with serious medical conditions need to be under Paediatric care elsewhere in addition to this service.

  • Your appointment

    If you are unable to attend your appointment please let us know at least 48 hours beforehand so we can offer your appointment to someone else. If you do not attend your appointment without telling us we may refer you back to your GP.

    Following your treatment you will be referred back to your GP.

  • Professional education and training

    The RLHIM is also a teaching hospital and from time to time other healthcare professionals may observe in outpatient clinics as part of a training course. We will always ask your permission for students to sit in during your consultation. You do not have to have students present if you would prefer not to.
