Woodfield Child Development Service

The main purpose of Woodfield Child Development Service is to offer children and young people, who have neuro-developmental disorders, a comprehensive assessment service that identifies, investigates, assesses their development needs and offers appropriate support, intervention and advice. The core team includes paediatricians, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, clinical psychology, clinical nurse specialists and music therapy. The service works in close partnership with community and acute service providers, education, social services and voluntary sector services. It also provides a local service for pupils attending Westminster Special Schools. (see Team Leaflet attached for more information).

Where relevant, the team provides health input for statutory areas of responsibility for education, looked after children, adoption and fostering. The team is also involved in the local implementation of immunisation policy and advice.

Children who are referred to the service are allocated to a specific pathway of care to ensure that they receive the appropriate level of assessment and intervention.

  • global developmental delay who require general assessment and advice
