What is the waiting time?

Waiting times in the emergency department will depend on how sick your child is. Your child will be triaged (assessed and categorised) to be seen within a certain timeframe by doctor.

Waiting times in private consulting rooms or in the hospital out-patient clinics will vary from 1 - 6 months. Generally private consulting room waiting room times are shorter and your General Practitioner can contact the General Paediatrician if your child needs to be seen quickly.
