  • Mental health – we are currently unable to accept referrals for mental health conditions where no other support has been established for child and family (ie., an appropriate mental health provider).

Who we treat

Queensland Paediatrics accepts new patients up to age 16 years, although exceptions may be considered in discussion with the Director.  Paediatric patients with complex or chronic care require a planned transition to adult services.

We believe that all children, from a developmentally appropriate age, should feel empowered in their healthcare journey, and be part of this transitioning process.  Queensland Paediatrics together with the patient and family, will create a transition plan and can provide ongoing care until your child finishes their schooling and/or feels ready to move onto adult care.
