New Community Paediatricians

We see children in the Harrogate, Hambleton & Richmondshire area with health and development issues which impact on their education.

We carry out medical assessments of children with Special Educational Needs, as requested by the education authority. These reports aid decision making about entitlement and provision of resources to meet their needs.

We contribute specialist expertise to the autism assessment process.

We carry out health assessments for Looked After children as requested by Social Care. These are detailed assessments of the health and wellbeing of children which help ensure their health needs are met while in the care of the Local Authority.
