Paediatric Services

BMI The Priory Hospital offers both in patient and outpatient care for children and young people.

Paediatric Services at Priory Hospital

We currently run four surgical lists per month for 3 to 18-year-olds and treat children for routine and complex surgery at BMI The Priory Hospital. Our paediatric nursing team provides excellent care for both daycase and in-patient stays.

A registered children’s nurse is involved in the planning and delivery of care for your child and is supported by a dedicated, friendly and caring team. Parents are encouraged to stay with their child overnight and arrangements can be made on request. 

Parents and children are also invited to visit the hospital in advance to familiarise themselves with the surroundings and help their child settle in the unfamiliar environment. We have a dedicated paediatric ward called the Rainforest Room where we ensure the children can feel as comfortable as possible.

Dedicated facilities and services include:

  • Child friendly dedicated ward

  • Toys, books and cars to ensure their stay is as enjoyable as possible

Paediatric Services at Priory Hospital

Your paediatrician can refer your child to a wide range of paediatric specialists and all of our specialists work within the pricing structure of the primary medical insurers.

At BMI The Priory Hospital, we also have a close working relationship with Birmingham Children’s Hospital and many of our consultants operate out of there also.

In our outpatients department, we can see patients from birth if you would like to book in your baby or toddler with one of our consultants. A GP referral to an appropriate consultant is essential. Self pay patients are also welcome and insured patients are advised to contact their insurance company before arranging any treatment.

Our physiotherapy departments also offer specialist musculoskeletal and orthopaedic care for paediatrics for children over the age of 12. We can treat children with bone, joint, muscle and ligament problems including sports injuries, scoliosis, joint hypermobility and back pain. All referrals will be screened for suitability by a specialist physiotherapist prior to an appointment being made.

Paying for treatment

  • All patients are welcome – whether they choose to pay directly for their treatment or by using their private medical insurance
  • We arrange direct settlement with insurance companies, but patients should pre-check their level of cover
  • For self-paying patients, we can advise the price in advance of the investigation, and we accept a number of payment methods including the BMI Card
