About_newcastle_paediatric_clinic

Welcome to The Newcastle Paediatric Clinic

We are a team of medical specialist doctors focused on diagnosing, treating and caring for children and adolescents with health disorders.

We provide a friendly service and work hard to make each visit to the clinic stress free for each patient and their family. When you attend a consultation you will see your specialist (no students or training doctors) and have time to discuss your complaints and concerns.

Our medical team includes six paediatricians and a paediatric surgeon. The paediatricians accept referrals across a broad range of medical and developmental problems. In addition several of the doctors also focus on a paediatric subspecialty.  Our doctors are highly trained and in an excellent position to recognise what is normal as well as what requires investigation and treatment.  We aim to practice up to date, evidence based medicine tailored for your child’s age and level of development.

The initial appointment with your paediatrician will be for an hour (surgical consultations are shorter), which usually allows you to fully explain your child’s complaints and express your concerns. After you leave work continues as we review results of investigations and reports and may with your permission include review of information held elsewhere (such as John Hunter Hospital Medical Records).  You are kept in the loop with appropriate communications.

Almost all doctors have access to the specialist investigations available in the John Hunter Hospital. We perform no stress inducing procedures in the clinic (no needles) but nearby have HAPS pathology and Hunter Health Medical Imaging.
