Child Health

London | Aberdeen

Children visiting ROC Private Clinic’s facilities can expect a friendly and safe environment and the best care from our highly trained GPs and paediatricians.  We pride ourselves in forming trusting and long-lasting relationships with families, and providing bespoke family centred care to all ages.

As a family focused clinic, paediatric care is a core part of what we do and our GPs highly experienced with assessment and management of the vast majority of paediatric conditions. When specialist input is necessary, we can refer your family to our own consultant paediatrician, or to another specialist in our highly reputable expert network.

We offer routine checks, urgent appointments, management of long term health conditions, immunisation programmes, as well as specialist services such as our allergy clinic.

Urgent Paediatric Appointments

Nothing is more distressing than being in the situation where your chill is ill and you are unsure where to turn.

Our clinics are able to provide same day urgent appointments. Please note that we are not an Accident and Emergency Department and if you feel your child’s condition is life threatening you must visit the nearest A&E department or call for an ambulance.

When attending our clinic for an urgent assessment your child will be assessed in comfortable surroundings by our friendly doctors. Our doctors will offer personalised advice and treatment. Should they feel that your child requires hospital admission, they can refer directly to private hospitals as well as the NHS.

Your Child’s Routine Health Checks

We offer various checks at different stages in childhood. We take a holistic approach, addressing growth, nutrition, sleep, toileting, speech and language, hearing, vision and the wider family.

You do not need to be registered with the clinic to attend for a routine check, but we advise registering to allow us to plan a series of checks from birth to teenage years.

We also offer expatriation, pre-school, visa and pre-holiday activity health checks and certifications. Often children are required to have TB clearance prior to commencing school, and we offer this service.

Childhood Immunisations

We undertake all routine UK recommended immunisations as well as catch up programmes for children moving to the UK.

We offer all types of vaccinations including HPV, Meningitis B and ACWY, Yellow Fever, Hepatitis A and B.

Specialist Paediatric Allergy Clinic

Our private clinic in Aberdeen offers the only private paediatric specialist clinic in Scotland. The clinic has been running since 2017 and is highly successful. A significant percentage of children awaiting allergy reviews have serious allergies, but do not always receive the specialist input they require to manage these allergies. At ROC we run specialist clinics to provide your child with a thorough assessment and management plan.

The clinic is run by Dr Gillian Vance, Consultant Paediatrician Specialist in Allergology and Immunology, supported by a paediatric nurse specialist in allergy. Your first appointment may last up to 2 hours and will consist of initial consultation, tests and review upon results of Skin Prick Testing. A detailed management plan will then be sent to the parents/carers as well as NHS GPs. Blood tests and other investigations are also available, if required.

We are currently seeking to expand these services to include food allergy challenges.
