Central London's private health services


Central London's private health services

Central London's private family health services provide access to some of the top paediatric doctors and specialists.

When you have children, the health services around you become so much more important. As a single adult you might not have visited your GP for years, yet suddenly ante-natal and post-natal check-ups, scans, vaccinations and infant illnesses find you accessing health professionals all the time.

Pregnancy and early parenthood also often open up a world of alternative medicine to people who want to find safe, non-medical solutions to health issues and general well-being. We begin to appreciate the spectrum of different private services at hand, from doulas and cranial osteopaths to paediatric dentists and doctors, alongside the services we might tap into from the NHS.

Benefits to private health clinics include faster access to appointments, continuity of care (which can mean a lot to a child who likes to see a familiar face), and specialised referrals and treatment.

Importantly, private care allows you to choose freely where you go, instead of your options being limited to what is within your local health area.
