We specialise in treating and caring for children and young people up to the age of 16, or up to the age of 19 if they are attending a specialist school. The team includes community paediatricians, specialist nurses and advanced practitioners who are supported by a dedicated team of administrators and health care workers.

We work at a variety of venues, allowing care closer to home or school, and can work with the child and their family to arrange the best times for them to be seen. We hold clinics in Breightmet, Deane, Farnworth, Great Lever, Horwich, Little Lever, Tonge Moor, Westhoughton, special schools, The Parallel Young People’s Centre and Bolton One.
