What we do
We provide a comprehensive clinical service for children local to King's and some from further afield. We offer direct access to a wide range of specialist paediatric services so that children with more complex disorders can receive family-centred, holistic care within the one unit.
We work in a variety of areas including:
- Paediatric Emergency Department
- Toni & Guy Ward
- Phillip Isaacs Day Case Unit
- Children's Outpatient Department.
We hold six general paediatric clinics every week. In addition, there is a rapid access clinic held three times a week in the Paediatric Emergency Department, where children who need more urgent assessment can be seen by a consultant.

For acutely unwell patients, GPs can discuss rapid access clinic review, ED attendance, and admission avoidance by phoning the Consultant Connect service. Each GP practice in the boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark, and Bromley has a unique phone number for Consultant Connect. If you are calling from outside these three boroughs, phone our switchboard on 0203 299 9000 and ask to speak to the paediatric short stay consultant on call. This is available Monday-Friday 08:30-22:00, and Saturday, Sunday and bank (public) holidays, 08:30-17:00.
In emergencies, referrers can call 020 3299 9000 and ask to speak to the on-duty paediatric consultant.
