Our clinic is on duty 24 hours a day, every day. We treat emergency patients under 16 years old suffering from paediatric diseases. Surgical trauma patients belong to the paediatric surgical outpatient clinic during office hours (8 am to 3 pm) and to the joint regional emergency care outside office hours. Soft tissue surgical patients (e.g. abdominal pain and hernia) are treated at our clinic during duty hours. We also treat scheduled paediatric appointments during daytime.
We admit patients either by a doctor's emergency referral or without a referral in urgent situations.
A clinic fee is collected from your visit.
Our goal is to provide high-quality and family-centred guidance and instructions about the treatment of paediatric diseases. We also give phone counselling 24 hours a day.
There are some magazines, toys, a TV and a microwave oven for children's food in the waiting lobby. The same lobby is used by children and their families waiting to be admitted to scheduled appointments to the surgical outpatient clinic.
