The London Pediatrics Clinic is a unique setting where practitioners from a variety of disciplines have joined together to provide a comprehensive service experience to best meet the complex needs of children and youth.
A unique feature of the London Pediatric Clinic is its multi-professional service model. This means that practitioners from a variety of specialty fields work together within the practice to best understand children and their needs. At the LPC, practitioners from psychology, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, social work, and medical-health work in partnership. We believe that children are complex beings. When they struggle, the views of more than one professional are often required to understand the problem and how to best help.
We describe our practice as "personality forward." We work hard to foster a comfortable and safe settings where all who enter can be who they are. This means that each practitioner is a person, just like you, with a whole life outside of our professions. We bring our genuine selves into our relationships with clients and families.
While we recognize that children and families have the right to privacy, and we do not share information with others without your expressed consent, within this practice we respect that we best serve our patients through integrated practices and inter-professional consultation. This means that we share information (as is felt to be necessary and appropriate) within our staff group. This could include reports, test results, and information on file from outside sources (e.g., schools). Agreeing to this policy means that we will not ask you at any point to sign any additional consent forms for any practitioner in this office to speak to the others about your child. We ask for this so that we can seek out and/or integrate other professionals' views to ensure we continue to provide your child with the highest quality of care that we can.
Everyone who works at or visits the LPC offices has the right to be treated with dignity and respect. A truly respectful environment requires the cooperation and support of all. To support this, we have adopted a policy of ‘zero tolerance’ to disrespect, bullying or harassment at the clinic. Each of us has a responsibility to set a positive example and behave in a manner that does not offend, embarrass or humiliate others, whether deliberate or unintentional.
Violence, threats of violence, discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment, intimidation, and any other misconduct can result in removal from the clinic and termination of services. Weapons are strictly prohibited from the premises; any violation of this will be reported to the police.
