Providing a high quality of evidence based care to children and their families
Welcome to the Paediatric Gut Investigation Clinic
This clinic offers a unique ‘one stop’ clinical service for all paediatric gut conditions. We conduct a variety of in-house diagnostic tests to ensure that an accurate clinical diagnosis is made. These diagnostic tests include hydrogen breath test (lactose, sucrose, fructose, lactulose), 24 hour pH study, skin prick test and colonic transit marker study. We also offer a phlebotomy service.
Our team is experienced in managing children with gut related problems both organic and functional, food allergy and nutrition. Children with chronic abdominal pain with a presumed diagnosis of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) may have a true underlying cause, such as food allergies, small bowel bacterial overgrowth and food intolerances like sorbitol, fructose, lactose and sucrose. Once we have diagnosed your child, we will ensure that the correct treatment is provided to improve or resolve their symptoms.
We are located at Spire Gatwick Park Hospital, one of the few private hospitals nationwide to offer this unique service for paediatric patients. Our service is convenient for our patients who would otherwise need to travel to the NHS Hospitals or Central London for further investigations.
