- Genetic syndromes and developmental concerns
- Neurological problems (seizures, cerebral palsy, headaches)
- Renal problems (kidney abnormalities, continence issues)
- Asthma, eczema, infections, anaemia and many other child health concerns.

We will provide general paediatric consultations but will also have a particular focus on heath concerns in the “early years” from infancy to kindergarten age.
