    Please enter any other information that may be useful

    Please explain that it is very important that their baby is seen at the next available slot, even if this is not quite as convenient as an appointment a week later. This is because we screen for the rare causes of prolonged jaundice and in some situations, it is better to make the diagnosis as soon as possible.

    The hospital monitors the availability of clinic slots carefully, but if you are referring late or there are no slots available within 2 weeks, please discuss with the paediatric SPR via 01473 712233, bleep 544, who will be able to help find a suitable time for the child to be seen.
