  • Paediatrics



Paediatricians are doctors who manage medical conditions affecting infants, children and young people.

Paediatrics can be divided into 4 main areas:

  • General paediatrics – a hospital role covering children from birth to the age of 16. Most paediatricians have this generalist role
  • Neonatology – this role specialises in looking after newly born babies. It is usually based in an intensive care unit looking after premature babies or those with problems at birth
  • Community paediatrics – these doctors are based in the community and look after children with developmental.
  • Paediatric cardiology – this is a small area which is a specialty in its own right.


If your child has been prescribed certain medication and administering that medication is about as enjoyable as pulling teeth – for both parties – there’s no doubt you’re looking for better solutions.

There are several reasons why administration of medication to kids can be difficult:

  • They hate the taste of the medication;
  • It comes in a form (such as a large pill) that is intimidating to them;
  • It may contain inactive ingredients that trigger allergies or adverse reactions;
  • They’re not in a good state to take it as prescribed (such as something that needs to be taken with food but the child has no appetite); and/or
  • The dose isn’t ideal for their age/weight.

By reaching out to a paediatric compounding pharmacy, there’s a good chance you can sidestep most or all of these potential concerns.
