Children managed at St George's Hospital (SGH) are either local, or regional tertiary patients. There has been a steady increase in the number of paediatric attendees in the Accident and Emergency department, in inpatient emergency admissions and outpatient referrals for local children. This reflects the increasing young population in SW Thames. Tertiary children’s services at SGH include endocrinology, gastroenterology, infectious diseases, neurology, oncology, allergy, paediatric surgery, PICU, trauma and respiratory medicine. The hospital is the second Trust in London with a helipad.
The department has its own outpatient’s department, the Dragon Centre; a child development centre; 4 wards with 57 inpatient beds; a developing Children’s Ambulatory Unit; a 10 bed PICU/HDU and 36 cot NICU.

The postholder’s duties will be shared between general paediatrics and paediatric gastroenterology.
