Urgent Care Centre for Children

Our centre is for non-life threatening medical needs and minor conditions. Here, children aged 0-17 can receive the urgent care they need 365 days a year, with no appointment required.

We diagnose and treat a wide range of injuries and illnesses including:

  • Fever
  • Flu
  • Vomiting
  • Respiratory complaints
  • Wounds and minor burns
  • Stings and infected insect bites
  • Broken bones and sporting injuries
  • Urinary tract and kidney infections
  • Stomach and bowel conditions
  • Ear nose and throat conditions

We provide your child with rapid access to our rota of leading paediatricians, urgent care doctors and specialist nurses. Children are usually assessed by a nurse within 15 minutes of arriving and shortly after they will have an appointment with a GP.

Expertise in emergency medicine
GPs and nurses with expertise in emergency paediatric care run the centre. Clinicians with this type of experience are able to diagnose and treat any acute or underlying serious condition your child might have.

Hospital admission
Our team have the time and resources to determine the appropriate diagnostic tests and treatments. Should your child require treatment from a specialist consultant, we offer a direct, seamless referral to the appropriate Portland Hospital on-call consultant. In this instance, it is possible to utilise private medical insurance, or to self-pay. Our on-site team will be able to provide you with further assistance regarding payments.
