Ronnie Mackeith Child Development Centre

Ronnie Mackeith sign


The Ronnie MacKeith Centre is a small unit, open Monday to Friday, which focuses on the development of children and young people with complex special needs.

The centre is named after Dr Ronnie MacKeith who was well known for work with children and young people and their families and carers.



We provide specialist medical and theraputic support for children and young people with long-term health conditions. Many specialists work at the centre, and children may see a number of staff in one visit, according to their needs. The team also supports families and carers with a well-used service which provides information.
