Bupa Cromwell Hospital opens new paediatric outpatient department

Summary

Bupa Cromwell Hospital has this week relaunched its paediatric outpatient department providing a wide range of specialist care and support for children and young people aged up to 18-years-old.

  • The new department will offer specialist care to children and young people aged up to 18-years-old
  • It will provide access to leading consultants, physiotherapists, nutrition experts and a 24-hour resident consultant paediatric intensivist
  • The launch follows a recent CQC report which rated its services in medical care as ‘outstanding’

The Skyline department, which also includes a children-only ward, will provide patients with access to leading consultants from across London’s top teaching hospitals. A multidisciplinary team will include highly-skilled paediatric nurses, physiotherapists, dietitians, and speech and language therapists, as well as a 24-hour resident intensivist dedicated to young people who need high-level care around the clock. It is the only private hospital in London with a resident paediatric intensivist, and appointments are available to all children and young people regardless of whether or not they have health insurance.

The launch of the new department follows a recent CQC inspection which rated Bupa Cromwell Hospital as ‘good’. The report in December 2018 commended the hospital for consistently high levels of patient satisfaction and safety, as well as being ‘outstanding’ for its services in medical care.

Phil Luce, Hospital Director, Bupa Cromwell Hospital, said: “We’re always looking to further improve the services we offer and I’m really pleased that the CQC has recognised the excellent level of care that we provide to our patients.

“When a child has a health scare, we know it can be a very worrying time for their families. So the new Skyline department has been developed to not only offer specialist care, but to also provide peace of mind that children can get support from leading consultants in a safe, calm and caring environment.”

The Skyline department opened on 14 January 2019, with appointments available immediately. For more information or to book an appointment, visit www.bupacromwellhospital.com or call 020 7460 5700.
