Paediatric Outpatient Services

Paediatric Outpatient clinics are run Monday to Thursday each weekday in the consulting rooms at the front entrance to the Child and Adolescent Unit (Building C). Children are seen by paediatricians, paediatric registrars or junior medical officers, and a paediatric clinical nurse specialist.

Also available is a Shared Care Oncology clinic run in collaboration with the Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH), Melbourne. A medical practitioner from the RCH visits to offer outpatient services to children and adolescents from the Greater Shepparton region receiving oncology and haematology treatment, and care is shared between the RCH and Goulburn Valley Health.  We also have other visiting paediatric specialists that attend on a monthly basis including; a Paediatric General Surgeon, Paediatric Cardiologist, and Genetic specialists.

In partnership with the Victorian Paediatric Rehabilitation Service (VPRS) and the Integrated Service Access Unit, children accessing VPRS services also attend clinics that are held monthly.
