Complex Kids Clinic

We are there for you and your children

The Complex Kids Clinic is designed to support families needing more complex care for their child. We understand that getting a thorough check can be difficult and so we wanted to dedicate a set time each week that you can book these appointments for bigger concerns.

1 hour appointment slots available to allow time to discuss concerns.

We suggest discussing these with our friendly front of house team before booking to ensure this is appropriate for you.

Examples of when to book the complex kids’ clinic are:
Developmental concerns, mental health concerns, chronic health conditions and seeking a new GP and just if you feel you need a longer time to discuss issues occurring for your child.

All Complex Kids Clinic consults are billed at $220 and will attract a Medicare rebate of $111.50 ($108.50 out of pocket).

Dedicated support for your child's needs

Your child deserves to have their learning needs met and understood. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen. Navigating the system is very challenging, and it is under much strain. For example, waiting times to see a developmental paediatrician have blown out in some cases to two years. The Garden Medical GP’s will try to listen to what is going on and get you started. We’re here to help you understand your child and what is going on for them. We aim to fill in that gap of a long wait time by monitoring what is going on and working towards a plan.

The best experience for your child

We have a child and parent-friendly waiting area, interactive touch screens so you can play games or watch videos while you’re waiting, and noise-cancelling headphones to help keep little ears from getting bored. We take care of your children as if they were our own.

Helping you navigate the system

The Garden Medical team are here to help you navigate the system. We have GP’s, nurses and psychologists to support you, we have a child and parent friendly waiting area and really care about what is going on for you.

We want to know what you're going through

You’ve been looking for help for your child but hitting dead ends. We know that this is a really difficult time – and we’re here to help. We understand developmental paediatrics, mental health issues in children, and learning difficulties. But we also understand the importance of taking the whole child into account, understanding the world in which they live.

Our GP’s, nurses and psychologists will work with you to find the best way forward for your child. Call or email us now – we can’t wait to hear from you.
