Paediatric surgeons treat a diverse range of conditions. The particular specialisation we bring to your child’s care is that we solely treat children. We know children and we understand families.

When a child needs an operation this is a stressful time for them and their parents. You need to be confident that you are seeing an expert, who knows when to operate on your child and how to ensure the whole process goes smoothly from start to finish. We are experts in assessing your child’s need for surgery, and ensuring you and your child are prepared for what is involved. On the day of surgery we work with nurses and anaesthetists who are also skilled in dealing with children in order to keep your child calm and safely cared for. Our care and advice after the operation will also be tailored to the needs of you and your child.

Paediatric Occupational Therapy


A paediatrician is a specialist doctor who looks after a range of medical conditions in children.  Dr Clare Stanley has extenive experience in the health and wellbeing of babies and children. She can provide care when children do not seem to be developing normally as well as provide diagnoses and management of a range of general medical problems including growth, feeding, respiratory illness, constipation and toileting difficulties particularly when your GP would like some further specialist advice. 

We see babies and children from birth to 15 years of age.

Dr Clare Stanley is currently not taking new referrals for neurodevelopmental and behavioural paediatrics due to her current waiting list. This will be re-evaluated. In the interim please refer to local DHB for a paediatric assessment.
