The Peacock Centre have doctors who work with children, called community paediatricians. You will see one of these doctors today because someone is worried about you.

Who will be there?

There might be a few people in the room with you, including the person who brought you, your Social Worker and Doctors.

Many children come here, you are not alone. If you have reported your worries to a teacher or another person, you have done the right thing and this takes a lot of courage. The doctor is here to listen and care for you. Please speak to them about any worries you have.
