Fairfield Paediatrics is a specialist paediatric practice with a particular focus on acute medical issues and long-term behavioural and developmental needs. For patients with an uncomplicated mental health condition, eg anxiety, we request in the first instance they be referred to a psychologist, paediatric psychiatrist or outpatient mental health service such as Headspace, CAMHS etc. If you would like any advice about potential options, please contact us to discuss.
Fairfield Paediatrics has experienced paediatric psychology services on site. Please phone the clinic to make an appointment.
For children with complex mental health conditions or comorbid medical conditions, please refer them to both Fairfield Paediatrics and an appropriate mental health provider. We are unable to accept referrals for mental health conditions where no other support has yet been put in place for the family.
