Children’s Health Check Services
Healthy children can have undetected physical, psychological or behavioural issues which can impact on their education and development. Our Kids Check process is designed to identify a broad range of different health issues so that we can facilitate appropriate early interventions.
This type of check is ideally performed before starting school or during the early school years but it is never too late.
We have designed a parent questionnaire and a thorough assessment to inform you and your family doctor of any potential underlying issues.
This children’s clinic is conducted by an experienced GP with special interest (GPwSI) in paediatrics who assesses and manages such issues in children. The assessment conducted by our GPwSI will identify potential issues and inform the parents and usual GP about their child’s health so that the appropriate next steps can be facilitated.
This assessment is evidence based and thorough and is a worthwhile activity for all children to undertake.

How does Kids Care work?
We worked as a team to develop this screening clinic for children aged 4 to 6 years old. This age bracket is the optimal time to assess and detect developmental delay or other neurological or physical challenges. However, from newborn babies onwards, iHealth Clinic still offers comprehensive care for children of all ages.
