Copperfield Childcare is one of the first paediatric practices in the Southern Suburbs, being established in 1978. Since then the Paediatricians may have changed, but one thing has remained and is integral to our core value – we are passionate about Paediatrics.
Convenient, Expert, Local Healthcare
We are here for you; whether we see you for a single consultation, or if you want to develop an ongoing relationship, we are committed to your child’s health and wellbeing.
Our services range from general medical and developmental check-ups to the investigation and management of complex paediatric conditions. We see children of all ages ranging from premature babies to adolescents.
These services range from experienced care at our rooms in Claremont and Constantiaberg MediClinic hospital, as well as expert inpatient care at both Kingsbury and Constantiaberg MediClinic hospitals.
Our Claremont practice is based in a child-friendly home environment, whilst the Constantiaberg practice is based at the Hospital’s Consulting Suites.
We would like to ensure that every infant and child should have same day access to the practice for emergencies. Sometimes it is not possible to see everyone between the 4 of us and both Kingsbury Life and Constantiaberg MediClinic hospitals have a good Emergency Room service which is open to patients 24 hours a day. Moreover these emergency doctors have constant access to the paediatrician on call should there be an emergency after hours.

For our standard non-urgent medical and developmental check-ups it is best to book well in advance.
We try hard not to run late as your time is valuable – however some days are unpredictable and this may be unavoidable. Our experienced reception staff may need to juggle appointments, in these circumstances.
