The Rapid Review Clinic is for children with an acute medical issue and aims to provide specialist review within 48-72 hours of referral.

The Rapid Review Clinic is only available to patients who have attended their general practitioner.  If you think your child might be suitable for the Rapid Review Clinic, your general practitioner will need to call the clinic to confirm and obtain appointment details.

FAQs

The Rapid Review Clinic can only be accessed by general practitioners. If you are concerned about your child and think they may be suitable, please attend your local general practitioner or contact us to see if the Drop In Clinic may be an option.  In an emergency you should call an ambulance on 000 or attend the nearest Emergency Department that sees children.

The Rapid Review Clinic is only for specific acute medical issues. We will be more than happy to address any other concern you have about your child at a separate appointment but another referral will be required.

If your child has become more unwell during business hours, please call us to see if we can arrange a same-day appointment and to discuss whether this is a safe option. If it is out-of-hours the safest option is always to attend the nearest Emergency Department that sees children or call an ambulance on 000.

We will only be able to see other children in the family if your general practitioner has discussed this with us and provided a written referral for each child.
