About our Specialist Children's Services

We provide care and support for children and young people (up to 19 years old) with complex health needs and learning difficulties. We provide respite care, community paediatricians and specialist nursing services.

Our staff are trained and qualified to work with children, and are required to continue on-going training and development. Our service is registered with the Care Quality Commission and meets all required standards.


Please follow Government advice published at 

Do not visit a GP practice, urgent care centre, or any of our services if you have symptoms.

We are aware that this will be a worrying time for you and for your family. We are doing all we can to keep our CYPF services running while also keeping you and our staff safe. However, please be aware that due to the impact of COVID-19 we will be prioritising urgent appointments and referrals and some services will be disrupted, postponed or delivered differently (via phone or video link where possible).

Our community paediatrician team provides medical advice, assessments, diagnosis and treatment for children and young people in Berkshire up to age 18 (or 19, if still in full time education).

We offer respite care for your child, providing a break for you and the rest of your family.

We also provide nursing services for children and young people with acute and complex health nursing needs across Berkshire.
