Community Paediatric Services

COMMUNITY PAEDIATRICS

About

Community paediatric services provide medical assessments for children. These assessments provide an opportunity for families to learn more about their child’s physical health and growth as well as emotional health and development. Clinics are designed to assist children and young people who are not currently under the care of a paediatrician.

What age groups do you see?

Children from birth – 16 years.

How can I access your service?

You will need a referral from your local doctor to access this service.

Where can I access your service?

Our services are provided in Community Health Centres in Sydney Local Health District.

What should I bring to my first appointment?

Please bring your child’s:

  • Referral letter
  • Blue Book (Personal Health Record)
  • Any previous medical reports or letters
  • Any preschool or school reports

What can I expect for my appointment?

When you arrive to the Community Health Centre you will be greeted by the receptionist. This person will let your child’s community paediatrician or doctor know that you have arrived.

During the appointment, your child’s paediatrician or doctor will have a chat with you about your child’s health needs, development and behaviours.

You will be given a report after the assessment is completed. This report is for you and your local doctor and will contain information on the assessment completed. This will help you better understand the strengths and needs of your child. Your child’s school or other support services might find the information useful to help tailor support and assistance for your child.

Who will I meet at my appointment?

You will meet your child’s paediatrician or doctor.

Our paediatricians and doctors are registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). For more information visit http://www.ahpra.gov.au
