Understanding

As a parent herself, Professor Brough knows how distressing and concerned a parent can be when dealing with their child’s condition.  All consultations are child-centred and we will always give you and your child enough time to fully discuss all concerns, guiding and supporting you both through treatment plans. We pride ourselves that a common thread across all our reviews is that we are thorough and take time to explain conditions and treatments with all our patients.

Sometimes parents can find it hard to remember all the information that is discussed during their child’s consultation. So, we always follow up every appointment with a consultation letter, detailing everything that was discussed during your consultation.
