Oxleas Community Paediatrics Medical Service
Our Community Paediatrics Medical Service aims to promote the health and welfare of Children and Young People (0-16 years) living in Greenwich. We work within the community in partnership with families, other health professionals and other agencies.
Community Paediatricians (children's doctors) may be able to help with concerns or worries about:
- Communication and interaction
- Children who have difficulties impacting on performance at school
- Children with disabilities with ongoing needs
We also conduct various forms of statutory assessments for children in collaboration with the Local Authority.
The service is available to Children and Young People from 0-16 years who are registered with a GP in Greenwich. Children and Young People may be referred up to the age of 19 if attending Charlton Park or Willow Dene Special Needs Schools

Oxleas Patient Experience survey
The Oxleas Patient Experience survey gives you the opportunity to feedback on the care and treatment you have received. We also encourage your friends, family and carers to also provide feedback. Hearing your views gives us a better understanding of the needs of our patients, families and carers which helps us to make sure that we are providing a good standard of care.
The short survey only takes a few minutes to complete and you can provide a written comment explaining what you think is working well and what is not. The Patient Experience team will collect the results of the surveys and these are shared with the relevant departments and management teams. This helps us to shape our services to continually improve the quality of the care and treatment we provide.
