General Paediatric clinics
At St. George Hospital, we have a limited capacity to provide public hospital paediatric specialist review of patients from our local community.
The general paediatric clinics have a waiting period of 3 months on average. Our clinic referrals are assessed by senior paediatric medical staff and prioritised according to the information provided by the referring GP. For patients requiring more urgent review, we invite GPs to contact us to discuss investigation and management prior to being seen.
Subspecialty Paediatric clinics
In addition, we have specialist paediatric clinics for endocrinology, allergy/immunology, gastroenterology, neurology and genetics. Being a scarce resource, all referrals to these clinics need to first be managed by a general paediatrician. The waiting period for new referrals to these clinics are usually greater than 6 months. Alternatively, paediatric subspecialist clinics are also available through the SCHN tertiary hospitals network.
Clinic Visit Preparation Online
Prior to the hospital clinic appointment, we are inviting families to send us information on what concerns they would like us to address with them during the clinic appointment.
