Children's outpatients

Our children’s outpatients departments are at the University Hospital of North Tees and the University Hospital of Hartlepool and we also provide a number of clinics at the Peterlee Community Hospital.

The department offers a range of clinics for children and young people from birth to 18 years old and depending on the clinic, a team of doctors, specialist nurses, speech and language therapists, community nurse or other members of the team will be at our clinics for:
