Additional Information

Rainbow Child Development Service

Prolonged Jaundice Appointments

We offer appointments for babies who are referred to us for prolonged jaundice.

Your midwife or health visitor will need to ring us to make the referral. For Halifax patients call 01422 224374 and for Huddersfield patients call 01484 343210

Appointments have to be booked within 2 weeks of us getting the referral – we do not have a specific prolonged jaundice clinic, so the appointment will be allocated into the most appropriate slot.

Once we have booked the appointment, we will ring you with the details.

Appointments with other departments

The Children’s Outpatient Clinic (especially at Acre Mill) is often the base for other departments to hold their appointments. These include:

  • BCG vaccinations (midwives)
  • Audiology
  • Baby hearing clinic
  • Orthopaedic clinic

We do not book / have any involvement with these clinics.

If you have any queries or need to re-arrange your appointment, you will need to contact the appropriate department. You can do this via the main hospital switchboards:

  • Calderdale Royal Hospital: 01422 357171
  • Huddersfield Royal Infirmary: 01484 342000
