Paediatrics - Babies, Children and Young people

We aim to provide the right care in the right place and the right time as close to home as possible.

We understand that taking your child to hospital can be quite stressful for yourself and the child but remaining calm will help keep them calm too. We will take good care of your child during their time with us.

Depending on your child’s needs we will direct you to the best possible service.

For emergency or urgent help please Dial 000 or attend the Emergency Department at your nearest facility

For Paediatrician outpatient appointments please seek a referral from your General Practitioner (GP).

For children needing help with complex needs returning home from Canberra or Sydney Children’s Hospitals please contact the Paediatric Clinical Nurse Consultant during business hours on (02) 4475 1650 or 0428 423 124.
