The Bright Futures™ programme provides an extensive all-encompassing screening programme designed to enable children to look forward to their brightest future possible.
Our Co-founders, Dr Martin Gray and Dr Margarita Burmester have both worked extensively in Canada and the United States of America, and conceived of the idea of providing American Academy of Paediatrics standards of preventative medicine (through their Bright FuturesTM guidelines) to babies and children in the UK.
Martin and Margarita are experienced paediatricians with a wide experience of child wellbeing, illness prevention and illness. Their mission is to transform the approach to child healthcare from a reactive treatment to illness, to a preventative screening and surveillance therapy. They also believe that screening and care of children needs to be delivered in a caring, child and family friendly environment.
Many parents who come from North America, Northern Europe and other areas with advanced healthcare systems expect regular, routine healthcare assessments for their family. We aim to offer this approach to healthcare to families in London and the UK.
The Bright Futures ™ programme aims to provide the highest quality of service to our children and to ensure that parents, families, and children have an unforgettable experience when they come to visit us.
“Once you experience the Bright Futures programme, you become like family. Our doctors stay connected with families and will build a bond that will keep them on track for exceptional care.”
