Paediatric Clinical Psychology Service

​​The Paediatric Clinical Psychology service supports children and young people with physical health problems and their families. We aim to help children, young people and their families to cope with the emotional and psychological aspects of health and illness. The service is run by Clinical Psychologists who work alongside lots of other health professionals. We work with children and young people up to the age of 18 years old.

The people we see can sometimes be experiencing difficulties with their thoughts, feelings, behaviour and ability to cope, and these difficulties will often be as a result of their medical condition, or will be impacting on their ability to manage their medical condition.

​How do I get an appointment?
  • If you feel our service would be of benefit, this can be discussed with your child's Paediatrician, Clinical Nurse Specialist, or wider multi-disciplinary medical team e.g. physiotherapist, occupational therapist, etc, who can refer you if in agreement.
Travel Costs
  • If you receive Income Support or Family Credit you are entitled to claim for transport costs.
