Paediatric Outpatient Clinics - Waitakere and North Shore Hospitals + Community Locations
These clinics are for children who need care from a specialist doctor for children (paediatrician) or nurse specialist.
How does my child get referred to the paediatric clinic?
If you have a concern, see your family doctor (GP) for a review. Your GP can send a referral for a paediatric clinic to ask for advice or a clinic visit.
How soon will the appointment be?
The children’s health team will review the information sent by your GP to decide how urgently your child needs to be reviewed. Some more urgent appointments may happen within a few weeks. Non-urgent appointments happen within 3-4 months.
You will receive an appointment letter by email or regular mail. You will also get a text reminder if we have your phone number.
If you think your child needs a more urgent appointment, please discuss with your GP.
