Specialist Clinics

Paediatric Outpatient Clinics are held at both John Hunter Children's Hospital (clinics also held on Belmont Campus) and John Hunter Hospital. 

The Children's Hospital Outpatient Department is a very busy service that will see approximately 27,000 children a year by 40 different specialists. There are 10 clinic rooms as well as a treatment room for small procedures.

Experienced paediatric nursing staff weigh and measure the height of children/adolescents on arrival and help with any procedures that may be required in the clinic.

A team of specialist doctors, nurses and allied health professionals hold clinics throughout the year. These clinics are often supported by Clinical Nurse Consultants who are specialised in a particular area of paediatrics.
