Consultant in Community Paediatrics

The population of East Berkshire is approximately 400 000, and community paediatric services are provided by Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. The community paediatric department is currently staffed by five consultants (approximately 4 wte), one associate specialist paediatrician and a specialty doctor. We also have working with us core and higher specialist trainees from the Oxford School of Paediatrics, who undertake on-call duties at Frimley Health Wexham Park Hospital, and from time to time F2 doctors. Consultants within the department share supervision and support of junior staff. There are close links with the Paediatric department at Frimley Health Wexham Park, where full inpatient and neonatal facilities exist.

Services are currently provided from the Child Development Centre in Slough, Children’s Resource Centre in Bracknell and children’s clinic at St. Marks Hospital, as well as from Special Schools. The service also provides clinics for looked after children in West Berkshire which take place in Reading. There are strong multiagency links with social care and education, and multidisciplinary links with CAMHS and professions allied to medicine.
