St George Paediatric Multidisciplinary Feeding Service


The Paediatric Multidisciplinary Feeding Service is a tertiary feeding service for children in our local area who have complex feeding problems such as cleft palate, neurodegenerative conditions, genetic syndromes, congenital heart disease and/or those who require enteral (tube) feeding.

A referral from a paediatrician is required to access this service directly.

In particularly complex or urgent cases where children have not yet seen a paediatrician we are happy to discuss the issues with the child's treating clinician (GP, allied health or nurse) and help find a suitable local service.  Please contact us as below. 

If you are the parent of a child with feeding difficulty please see your Early Childhood Centre or GP in the first instance as our clinic does not accept self-referral from parents.

This website contains resources developed by the service, and links to other useful sites.  If you have any additional information you think should be hosted here, please let us know by email.



Whether or not a child is eligible to come to our clinic, we’re keen to help primary care clinicians manage feeding problems in our local community. 

If you are a GP, allied health professional, nurse or other clinician who would like to discuss a child with complex feeding issues, please contact us by email or phone 9113 1360 and ask for the Feeding Clinic Coordinator.
