Multi Disciplinary Clinic

The team meet with the family and any support person to establish a clear view of each child's needs, and agree a plan for the future. A key worker is nominated, usually the professional working most closely with the family at that time, to provide an ongoing link between the team and the family.

The Child Development Centre occupies the former maternity wing at the Robinson Hospital. The centre focuses on the needs of children and is a resource centre for all children with chronic health disorders, disability or special needs.

The centre provides the focus for a coordinated multi-disciplinary team approach to diagnosis, assessment and management. It brings together health, social and education services in the provision of care and information for parents and children. The centre provides a vital link between hospital and community, thus avoiding the fragmentation of local services.

The Community Paediatric Medical team offers assessment of any child who may have problems with development, behaviour, education or general health issues. Children who require assessment of Special Educational needs and those who have difficulties at school are also seen at the centre. There is also a specific assessment process available for children suspected of having an Autistic Spectrum Disorder or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
