We run craniofacial outpatients clinics on a Thursday afternoon from 2pm. Ophthalmology also run a craniofacial clinic at the same time.

On the last Thursday in the month, at 2.30pm, we have a joint, multidisciplinary clinic where we see children and families with more complex conditions that are coming up for surgery, or perhaps adolescents that are ready for transfer to an adult service.

Our clinics are located on Level 1, Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine building (situated next to the main entrance to Great Ormond Street Hospital).

If you need to reschedule an outpatients appointment please contact the Appointments team on 0207 829 8880.
