General Health & Wellbeing, Hospital & GP
|Monday - Sunday||24 Hours|
At The Children's Hospital at Westmead, we try to reduce the anxiety and disruption to our children and their families by keeping their stay in hospital as short as possible. We do this by providing day-only surgery and a range of innovative programs where as much care as possible is provided on an outpatient basis.
We have introduced and are committed to expanding our Outreach Services so that some children need not visit the Hospital at all. This takes a lot of extra work and co-ordination, but for the children and their families it's well worth the effort.
Ensuring that sick children living in the country are not disadvantaged by distance is a priority. One way we achieve this is through outreach clinics, where our doctors go to the children. Outreach clinics are very much a part of our commitment to improve clinical services to the community and to allow fair access to the best medical care.
