Community Paediatrics - West Lancashire


Our community paediatric services are made up of a team of specialist children’s doctors with skills and expertise in child development, autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), social and educational paediatrics.

The Community Paediatric Services are closely linked to hospital services. The services do not usually deal with one-off, short term illness but rather, offers long term support, co-ordination of services and management on a continuous basis to many children with “special needs”, such as a disability or long term illness.

Much of child health work is of a statutory nature, carried out under the Children Act, the Education Act and Adoption Regulations.

  • The community paediatric team is based in Ormskirk hospital
