General Paediatrics

General paediatricians have the knowledge and skills to manage a wide range of health problems and concerns in children and young people. They manage children from birth to late adolescence with issues that can be acute, and chronic conditions, and also focus on health promotion from new-born to late adolescence. By virtue of this basis, they have a long-term relationship with their young patients.
