Paediatrics

London North West Hospitals NHS Trust provides a range of services for children at our different hospital sites - Central Middlesex, Ealing and Northwick Park Hospitals as well as in the community.

We deliver family-centred care with parents and extended families joining with the hospital team which is the key to paediatric care today. Everything is planned in discussion with children's families who are encouraged to play an active part whilst the child is under our care.


Central Middlesex Hospital

  • Paediatric day surgical service, Monday to Friday, from 8am to 5pm, providing day surgery facilities for children undergoing minor surgical procedures.  
  • Paediatric outpatients (such as general paediatrics, epilepsy, diabetes and allergies) Monday to Friday
  • The Brent Sickle Cell and Thalassemia Centre

The GP led urgent care centre treats adults and children and is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week. It is located at Central Middlesex Hospital although managed and provided by Care UK.

Ealing Hospital

  • Paediatric  outpatients (such as general paediatrics, diabetes, allergies and infectious diseases) Monday to Friday
  • Paediatric day care Monday to Friday, from 8am to 5pm

Paediatric day care is a children’s nurse led day care unit caring for children who attend for special investigations, treatments and blood tests.

  • Paediatric Rapid Access Clinic Monday to Friday, from 9am to 7pm, Saturday and Sunday, from 11am to 2pm 

The RAC clinic provides GP’s in the Borough of Ealing and the Ealing UCC with access to expert advice, provided by Consultant Paediatricians, on children’s health and access to specialist appointments.

  • Community nursing team and continuing care nursing team. 

Our community children's nursing team provides expert support for children and families at home as part of the continuing care in Ealing. The team will be based at Ealing Hospital alongside our other children’s services to ensure seamless care between hospital and care in the community. We work in partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital providing shared care in the community for oncology children. We work closely with the community child development team to care for children with long-term disabling conditions.

The above services are provided on level 10 at Ealing Hospital. As much as possible our treatment for children takes place on a day care basis which is welcomed by children and parents. Being able to recover in the familiar surroundings of home makes the experience far less traumatic. 

All our facilities for children are designed to make their visit as pleasant and non-intimidating as possible for our young patients.

Background 

On June 30 2016 planned changes were made to the children’s services at Ealing Hospital designed to improve care across NW London. As a result of these changes A&E services are no longer available for children at Ealing Hospital. Ambulances will take children to a hospital with a children's A&E either: West Middlesex, Hillingdon, Northwick Park, Chelsea and Westminster or St Mary’s hospitals depending on the child’s needs.

Urgent Care Services 24/7 continue to be provided at Ealing Hospital for children and adults.

More information about these changes is available at this link - https://www.healthiernorthwestlondon.nhs.uk/bettercare/hospitals/childrensservices
