Our Services

 Babies and children's clinic 


We operate a clinic at our Askham Bar site in York for babies and children aged up to eleven years with respiratory illness or a fever. 

Known as the Children's Ambulatory Treatment (CAT) Hub, the clinic is a collaboration between York and Scarborough Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, North Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group, Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group and Nimbuscare. 

Its aim is to prevent babies and children from going into hospital unnecessarily with respiratory illnesses. The dedicated GP and paediatric nurse-led service is available for babies and children from three months to eleven years of age with fever or symptoms of respiratory illness, including croup, bronchiolitis and viral wheezing.

Parents and carers must first contact the child’s GP or NHS111 for an initial assessment - they, or a paramedic, can then refer them to the clinic, if appropriate.

They will then be seen by an experienced children’s nurse, working alongside a GP, in our child and family friendly clinic.

Dr Rebecca Brown, clinical lead for the CAT Hub, explained: “It’s important that parents and carers seek advice from their GP first if they are concerned – this way they can come to see us, rather than blocking up the Emergency Department at the hospital.”
