Raffles Children Centre is a complete one-stop clinic for infants and children, providing services from general paediatric medicine to sub-specialty care. Located in Raffles Hospital, Tampines 1, and Raffles Holland V, it is our mission to care for your precious ones.
Our services extend beyond office hours. If your child has an emergency medical condition requiring hospitalisation, our paediatricians on call are available to attend to the case. After discharge, we will continue to provide postnatal support to monitor your child’s condition and well-being.
Services We Offer:
Infant and Neonatal Screening
We provide infant and neonatal screening programmes, including:
Universal Newborn Hearing Screening
About 1 in 1,000 babies in Singapore has significant hearing impairment at birth. Early detection and intervention can prevent delays in language acquisition and intellectual development.
Newborn Metabolic Screening Programme
A simple heel prick test can screen for rare but potentially serious disorders, such as phenylketonuria (PKU), cystic fibrosis, and congenital hypothyroidism.
Your baby may also encounter issues such as feeding, regurgitation, blocked nose, prolonged jaundice, rashes or infantile colic. Our paediatricians will be able to provide medical advice and support for you and your child.
General Paediatric Medicine
Besides managing common paediatric conditions, we also provide the following services for your child:
Vaccinations for Infants and Children
Vaccination remains the most effective way of protecting your child against serious and life-threatening conditions. We offer vaccinations that are in line with the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) National Childhood Immunisation Programme (NCIP), as well as additional vaccinations to enhance your child’s protection. For overseas-born children following the immunisation schedule of their country of birth, we also provide country-specific vaccinations.
Children’s Travel Clinic
We can help prepare your child for his or her vacation by offering comprehensive travel advice and relevant travel vaccinations. This keeps your child protected while travelling, giving your family a peace of mind.
Childhood Behaviour and Development
Learning and behavioural disorders such as speech delay, autism, and attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder can be managed if recognised early. We can identify such disorders and develop an appropriate treatment plan for your child to ensure his or her growth and well-being.
Children are increasingly prone to developing allergic conditions such as allergic rhinitis, asthma, and eczema. We can investigate the symptoms and develop the appropriate treatment plan for your child.
Paediatric skin diseases, such as rashes and skin infections, can be worrying for you and your child, especially if they are visually obvious. We can help diagnose and manage such conditions accordingly.
Gastroenterology and Nutrition
Our paediatric gastroenterologist can address concerns regarding your child’s feeding issues or gastroenterological conditions. Together with a dietitian, we will advise on the treatment and care needed to ensure your child’s healthy and optimal growth.
General Paediatric Surgery
Unlike adults, children undergoing surgery often have special physiological and psychological considerations. Our paediatric surgical team at Raffles Children Centre is well-positioned to treat children of all ages, ranging from premature newborns to teenagers.
We are trained to be sensitive to the needs of you and your child, while preparing your child for surgery. From common conditions like phimosis and inguinal hernias to less commonly-encountered diseases such as Hirshsprung’s Disease and childhood tumours, our team adopts a holistic approach to ensure your child’s well-being.
