We care for your baby
The Paediatric Service at the Family Clinic for Children provides holistic, evidence based quality care and advocacy for all children and adolescents with acute and chronic health needs.
The service is child and family centred, as we understand that the family is central to the successful delivery of health care. We believe in respect for each child and family and their cultural and religious needs. Each person is an individual with the right to dignity and privacy.
The environment is child friendly and developmentally appropriate, with the opportunities for learning and play seen a fundamental. The environment is also safe, functional and comfortable, with a bed for a parent to sleep in each room and a parent lounge in each ward.
We are committed to staff excellence, with a rich culture of ongoing professional development in the specialty of Paediatrics.
You will meet under graduate and post graduate nursing, allied health and medical students who are studying to gain qualifications.
Feedback and how to provide it
Health service staff are committed to continuous quality improvement and appreciate that comments, complaints and compliments from patients provide an excellent opportunity to understand their services from the patient’s perspective.
You may want to comment on a positive experience or report an issue so that it can be followed up and acted upon to prevent similar situations occurring with other patients.
