Paediatricians are dedicated medical doctors who specialise in the comprehensive health care and treatment of babies, children, and adolescents. They have extensive knowledge about many different conditions and illnesses that can affect children’s health, welfare, behaviour and learning, and understand how different illnesses and conditions relate to each other.

Listed below are some of the issues that your GP may refer you to see a paediatrician for:

Routine Check-ups

Diagnosis & Treatment of Illnesses: Paediatricians treat a wide range of childhood illnesses, such as respiratory infections, ear infections, allergies, and gastrointestinal issues.

They may prescribe medications, recommend treatments, or refer children to specialists if needed.

Developmental Assessments: Paediatricians assess a child’s physical, cognitive, and emotional development to identify any potential delays or concerns. They may provide guidance and interventions to support healthy development.

Management of Chronic Conditions: Paediatricians care for children with chronic conditions like asthma, diabetes, ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder. They monitor the condition, adjust treatment plans, and provide ongoing support to help children manage their health effectively.

Preventive Care & Health Education: They offer guidance on nutrition, exercise, safety, and other preventive measures to promote overall health.

Collaboration with other Healthcare Professionals: Paediatricians work closely with other specialists and allied health practitioners to provide comprehensive care for your child.

Parental Support & Counselling: Paediatricians can offer guidance and support to parents on various aspects of child-rearing, including behavior management, sleep issues, and emotional well-being.
