There are a range of talking therapies which are highly effective in dealing with many child and teenage problems. For more information on these therapies please view the NHS Talking Therapy Guide.
Alternatively it is also possible for Parents to self-refer children to the Bromley Community wellbeing service for children and young people. which is the same service that your GP would refer to. This service covers a wide variety of problems including Anxiety & Depression, Bullying, sexual identity, conflict with parents, Panic attacks, eating difficulties, Behavioural problems, Attention Deficit (ADHD), Phobias and social/communication issues as well as many other problem.

Some newborn babies are released from hospital without a detailed examination. If this is the case, our GPs are happy to perform the relevant checks, either in the surgery, or in the comfort of your own home, depending on which is easier for you.
In most cases, the Practice will contact new mums to arrange for this to happen, on rare occasions where we are unaware of the birth, please feel free to give us a call and arrange an appointment or visit.
