Well-Child Checks 

Regular check-ups are important to monitor your child’s growth and development from infancy through school. Our team identifies and manages health issues early and answers any questions about your child’s growth and healthcare needs. Our clinic provides a variety of vaccination options and well-child packages. 

 

Common Childhood Diseases 

Our paediatric care extends to common childhood conditions, including respiratory and gastrointestinal infections, asthma, eczema, constipation, febrile seizures, skin conditions like chickenpox and hand, foot and mouth disease. Our team also evaluates children‘s growth, identify issues and offer management plans, starting with an initial consultation and followed by tailored recommendations for ongoing care. 

 

Adolescent Medicine Services 

Adolescents aged 10 to 19 receive dedicated services for a range of challenges, including eating disorders, autism, attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD), anxiety, depression, self-harm or suicidal thoughts, bullying, somatic symptom disorders, learning impairments and emotional disturbances. Our team also provides clinical services for sexual health, cyber-addiction and other behavioural conditions. Clinical psychologists and art therapists are also available to offer counselling and therapy when needed. Additionally, we coordinate the management of other common adolescent problems with adolescent psychiatrists and gynaecologists at NUH. 

Our Support Group and Programme

Project Dreamcatchers

Dreamcatchers is a peer support group for adolescents managing chronic illness. This community of youths deals with various forms of childhood chronic conditions, from congenital conditions such as spina bifida and heart diseases to rare genetic conditions, end-stage renal failure and diabetes. 

The group has around 60 members, aged 11 and above, each participating at various capacities within the programme. A notable initiative is Project Dreamcatchers, a visual arts exhibition that brings to life the personal narratives and experiences of the members.
