Crawley MP Henry Smith, who recently visited, said: “I’m delighted that Paediatric Diagnostics has launched a modern, new private clinic serving children's needs in Ifield. Crawley is the geographical centre, but it professionally serves Sussex, Surrey, Kent, London and beyond – a true testament to the professional care offered. Meeting the dedicated staff from an impressive clinical background was a privilege.”
Paediatric Diagnostics said the idea for the Ifield-based clinic came from Sam Khemani, medical director; Femi Omowo, clinical director; and Danika Patel, director of quality, who have a combined experience of over 40 years in diagnosing and treating children. The clinic is staffed with highly skilled, compassionate children’s nurses and private Consultant Paediatricians who specialise in areas including: gastroenterology, allergy, ENT (ear, nose, and throat), endocrinology, and cardiology. They aim to provide the best care and attention to the unique healthcare needs of children.
Paediatric Diagnostics said patients will have access to first-class medical expertise and state-of-the-art diagnostics, including blood tests and ultrasound scans. Other key services include: children’s allergy, children’s blood test, children’s cardiology, children’s dermatology, children’s ear, nose and throat (ENT), children’s gastroenterology, children’s general surgery and children’s neurology.
A Paediatric Diagnostics spokesperson said: “The unveiling of the paediatric outpatient clinic marks a pivotal step in addressing the healthcare needs of the younger population. With a rising number of patients seeking its services, the clinic is addressing a growing demand for specialised paediatric care, driven by extended waiting times in the NHS and challenges in accessing private paediatric medical treatment in some private hospitals. The Paediatric Diagnostics team aims to collaborate with NHS paediatric services, aligning with their shared commitment to delivering high-quality healthcare to children. The clinic aims to establish a Service Level Agreement (SLA) with the Berkshire and Surrey Pathology Service to fortify its ties with the local trust.”
