A fresh start for comprehensive, integrated and multi-disciplinary care
In November 2017 a new Paediatric service started at Macquarie University Clinic. The Centre for Paediatrics (CentrePaeds) is a Centre of excellence for quality multi-disciplinary paediatric care that brings together a wide range of experienced Paediatricians and Allied Health Professionals.
CentrePaeds is the first private comprehensive and integrated care Paediatric service in the Northern Sydney Local Health District (NSLHD). The dedicated Paediatric service at Macquarie University Hospital Clinics aims to service the local area, it is ideally situated between the two major Tertiary Children’s Hospitals: Sydney Children’s Hospital in the east and the Children’s Hospital at Westmead in the west.
The Centre has begun to seeing a number of complex medical patients that require the integrated services provided by the team. A child with delayed speech and poor social interaction can be quickly diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) through a number of investigations and assessments which will enable to the parents to get an accurate diagnosis early to allow intervention and application for NDIS funding to occur.
