Mother with sick child in children's AandE

The Paediatric department aims to look after all the needs of sick children. 

We hold clinics at Croydon University hospital, and Parkway Health Centre in New Addington. 

We have visiting specialists that come to Croydon University Hospital to help provide the service to our local community. 

These specialists cover:

  • Heart conditions 
  • Neurology
  • Endocrinology
  • Growth disorders
  • Surgery
  • Genetics

We have in-house specialists who have links with surrounding hospitals, such as Royal Marsden, St George’s and Kings.

Croydon Health Services staff have interests in diabetes, adolescent medicine, nephrology, infectious diseases, cardiology, child development, sickle cell disease, haemoglobinopathies, neurology, oncology ( cancer) and breathing disorders. We also have links to gastroenterologists locally as well as at Great Ormond Street hospital, St George’s and St Helier’s hospital. For allergy related conditions, we work with St George’s and the Evelina Children's hospital .

We have short waiting list times and are always available to discuss cases and see them urgently if needed. There is a Consultant of the week who is in service and readily available to discuss referrals for Outpatient or Inpatient care, or any issues in paediatric care that is of concern to the primary care physician.
