Disclaimer: The following page is designed to provide information and advice for GPs when they are considering referring a child to the paediatric department at the Whittington.
The Whittington Hospital provides a consultant-led urgent referral clinic -  the '10-12' clinic - running between 10am - 12pm Monday to Friday. This service enables GPs to refer children with an acute illness for a consultant opinion on an urgent basis.

From 7 April 2014 the ‘10-12’ clinic has changed. It has been incorporated into the new ambulatory care centre and is now located on level 2. Access remains via the main hospital entrance on Magdala Avenue and patients should be advised to follow internal signage to the ambulatory care centre.

The ‘10-12’ clinic is now a pre-booked clinic only and we no longer accept same day referrals. This will help us to ensure every child is seen by the right person, in the right place, at the right time.

All patients should be referred using the new ‘10-12’ referral form (see below). All referrals must include a contact telephone number to allow clinic staff to book the urgent appointment with the family.

All referrals will be triaged and given an appointment within 24 to 72 hours where appropriate. In some cases, where a specialised opinion is more appropriate, we may offer the family an appointment in an alternative clinic.

If a same day review is required please contact the on-call paediatric SpR (contact details below) and we will arrange to see the child in our paediatric emergency department on the same day.
